Amendment 4 Makes Solar More Affordable in Florida

Yes on Amendment 4 Will Lower the Cost of Solar for Floridians 

 Florida voters will have an opportunity to lower the cost of energy – simply by voting YES on Amendment 4 on the August primary ballot. The proposed amendment, if passed, will exempt solar systems from the burdensome tangible personal property tax for a period of 20 years.

 

A YES vote on Amendment 4 would lower the cost of energy in Florida by removing burdensome taxes that make it more difficult to go solar. Amendment 4 would remove property and real estate taxes on solar energy systems, lowering the cost to lease or buy solar panels for your home or business. That makes solar more affordable and accessible for everyone!

Better solar economics means more solar development, which lays the groundwork for cleaner air and a more sustainable future for Floridians.
