Today is Solar Industry Day in Tallahassee! Stop by the capitol courtyard and check out solar displays, ask questions about solar energy and learn about exciting solar happenings in the Sunshine State.
Solar companies added 1,700 new jobs during 2016, a 26% increase bringing the industry to over 8,200 jobs statewide. Momentum is building with early movement of SB 90 in the legislature. It will ensure solar Amendment 4, which received 73% voter approval in 2016, can be implemented.
It’s time for Florida to embrace the sun as an energy resource. We look forward to seeing you today!
