ESA Designated as Petition Site for Floridians for Solar Choice

Petition site has been set up for those wishing to sign the petition seeking an Amendment to the Florida Constitution

floridians-solar-choiceSanford, FL., March 24th, 2015 – ESA Renewables, an industry leader in providing turnkey solar solutions, recently announced that its company has been designated a Petition Site for the Floridians for Solar Choice. Interested parties can visit ESA’s website to sign the petition seeking an Amendment to the Florida Constitution.

In January of this year, a coalition founded by environmentalists and political conservatives announced a petition drive for a Florida constitutional amendment that would open up the business of selling electricity from solar energy.

By seeking to allow entrepreneurs to become power providers, leaders of Floridians for Solar Choice coalition expect fierce opposition from the state’s major electric utilities.

The coalition aims to get a proposed constitutional amendment on the 2016 ballot. Its petition would need nearly 700,000 signatures, the proposed amendment would require state Supreme Court approval and its passage would require 60 percent voter support.

Coalition organizers want to emulate the campaign behind November’s passage of Amendment 1, requiring the state to dramatically accelerate spending on environmental needs. That will mean growing the coalition to have perhaps hundreds of groups as members.

“In order for Floridians to be given the chance to vote on this issue, we need to collect thousands of signatures,” said Lindsay Herold, CEO of ESA Renewables. “By signing this petition, you are helping us secure a place for solar choice on the 2016 ballot so that all Florida voters can make a choice.”
