Florida Alliance for Retired Americans backs Floridians for Solar Choice ballot initiative

The Florida Alliance for Retired Americans (FLARA), a non-profit organization with over 200,000 members, has endorsed the Floridians for Solar Choice ballot initiative. Members of FLARA are enthusiastic to support an initiative that truly aligns with their objective to support the well-being of senior residents of Florida.

“The Florida Alliance for Retired Americans wholeheartedly endorses the Solar Choice Amendment. We believe Floridians for Solar Choice offers needed consumer protections – especially for vulnerable seniors who often have to choose between medicine and a power bill – by helping to lock in energy prices with solar power. As we face a wave of baby boomers retiring, solar can help lower electricity bills while protecting precious natural resources for future generations,” said Bill Sauers, President of The Florida Alliance for Retired Americans.

The Florida Alliance for Retired Americans (FLARA) joins the non-partisan coalition of more than 60 businesses, industry associations, conservative groups, faith communities, clean energy advocates, and environmental organizations that have officially endorsed the Solar Choice campaign.

The ballot proposal is designed to expand solar choice by removing barriers that limit solar ownership models. Florida is one of only four states where current law expressly denies citizens and businesses the freedom to buy solar power electricity directly from someone other than a monopoly electric utility or government-owned electric utility.
