"The amendment clearly expands access to solar energy for Florida residents and businesses. As well, it safeguards solar energy users from fraudulent practices, and protects 'electricity only' persons from being forced to subsidize solar energy," said Luis De Rosa, President of the South Florida Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce. "Our Chamber represents many of these businesses in Miami-Dade County. We believe that promoting renewable energy alternatives - being an environmentally sound and economically wise policy - is in the interest of our members and of all the residents of our great state."
"As Florida continues to advance renewable energy alternatives, we must insist that it be both environmentally sound as well as protect the interests of all consumers," said Fuentes. "By voting YES on Amendment 1 on November 8th we are on track to do just that."
