Solar Sales at Issue as Florida Supreme Court Assesses Amendments
The Florida Supreme Court is looking at two energy-related constitutional amendments to determine if they can try to qualify for a spot on the November, 2016 ballot. In addition to court approval, proposal sponsors must gather 683,149 signatures.
Floridians for Solar Choice — which is being pushed by the owners of solar company Solar-Fit — is a proposal that, if approved, would enable businesses to sell as much as 2 MW of power to customers on the same or neighboring properties. Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy, the Tampa Electric Company and Gulf Power have filed a joint brief against the amendment, the story at The Daytona Beach News-Journal says.
A group of Florida utility providers also are trying to get a proposal on the ballot, the story says.
Duke Energy Florida may be fighting the Floridians for Solar Choice amendment, but it is using solar. Its is planning its second solar plant, a 5 MW facility in Perry.
