The Pied Piper’s of (Florida)
Vote No on Amendment #1
Constitutional Amendment #1 rights of Electricity consumers regarding solar energy choice
If one tells a lie often enough
and long enough,
soon people will believe it to be the truth.
A lie is a lie, is a lie and will always be a lie.
Solar amendment misleading, harmful to consumers
We urge Floridians to vote no on Amendment 1
for three reasons:
1. It’s funded by Florida’s big utilities to protect their monopolies and limit customer-owned solar.
2. It paves the way for barriers that would penalize solar customers.
3. It misleads Florida voters by promising rights and protections that Florida citizens already have.
Follow the money
Vote No on Amendment 1
I want to tell you why you should vote NO on Amendment 1 — the so-called “Rights of Electricity Consumers Regarding Solar Energy Choice.”
The amendment would give people no new rights to solar energy but would simply “constitutionalize the status quo,” according to a member of the Florida Supreme Court. It hardens current law favoring utility company profits over consumer rights and clean air.
Amendment 1 is an effort to confuse voters and block an amendment introduced by a grassroots coalition called Floridians for Solar Choice. The “solar choice” amendment has broad support; support for Amendment I comes from electric utility companies and organizations backed by the Koch brothers.
Opponents of the measure say,
however, that the amendment wouldn’t do much for the consumer
since the amendment would simply codify what’s already legal
for the consumer to do anyway.
Opponents of the measure also say consumers using their own solar power could be hit by fines from regulators
with special fees for access to the solar grid.
Consumers for Smart Solar stepped on the scene to raise money to help expand solar energy in Florida late last year and has already fundraised a hefty chunk of cash in 2016, in part due to being well-connected with its donor base.
The initiative brought in a whopping $8.5 million during the month of April.
Some of the group’s largest backers have been statewide power and utility companies like
Florida Power & Light Company, Duke Energy, and Tampa Electric Company.
The Pied Piper of Hamelin
Florida believes that if they vote in Marco Rubio this time he will stick around and do his job.
Donald Trump is just joking and does not plan to take care of only Donald Trump!
