FWF Supports Amendment 4 for Solar Power on the August 2016 ballot

Date 07/07/2016

Amendment 4 would remove a barrier to solar power by exempting the panels and other solar equipment from the real property tax and the tangible property tax – currently huge barriers to solar in Florida. This policy will lower the cost of solar, increase clean energy jobs, and greatly expand solar development across the state! It is ludicrous that Florida, the Sunshine State, is so far behind other states in taking advantage of this free and natural source of energy. This non-partisan Amendment, supported by Republicans, Democrats and Independents, will lessen our dependence on fossil fuels, save money and help clean our environment. 

Here is the Amendment language: SOLAR DEVICES OR RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCE DEVICES; EXEMPTION FROM CERTAIN TAXATION AND ASSESSMENT —Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize the Legislature, by general law, to exempt from ad valorem taxation the assessed value of solar or renewable energy source devices subject to tangible personal property tax, and to authorize the Legislature, by general law, to prohibit consideration of such devices in assessing the value of real property for ad valorem taxation purposes. This amendment takes effect January 1, 2018, and expires on December 31, 2037.

Please vote YES on Amendment 4 this August!
