Ok. I’ll take a stand. Florida’s Amendment 1 is a trojan horse. It *sounds* like it’s an amendment to help solar power users but it allows the exact opposite. It’s promising rights we already have (giving us nothing new). What does it change? It allows electric companies to charge more to provide electricity to solar customers. [written as “protecting consumers” from supporting solar if they don’t have it. But consumers are ALREADY protected from that. Nothing new.] I *think* it may also pave the way to remove the power company’s Solar refunds – the refunds you get when you decide to go solar. Mind you, we don’t pay for that anyway. Removing that rebate won’t give the consumers any more $$$ nor will it save us money. The way they worded things is so precise and tricky… you just about have to be a lawyer to understand them -and even then, you have to research who the players are.
