Florida takes actions in favor of large-scale solar installation and against rooftop solar

The buildings consume over 40% of the total amount of worldwide produced energy and approximately 24% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are released from them. On the other side, Florida is just one of eight states where it’s illegal to sell solar-generated electricity directly to consumers — unless the provider is a utility. While Florida utilities are doing their part in adding more solar farms in the state, they haven’t been as receptive to homeowners who want to add solar, as a New York Times report that “the utilities have hindered potential rivals seeking to offer residential solar power. They have spent tens of millions of dollars on lobbying, ad campaigns and political contributions. And when homeowners purchase solar equipment, the utilities have delayed connecting the systems for months”. All of these facts reveal Florida state is where solar markets are in total control of its utility. --------------------***-------------------- Source:@Solar_Edition Photo:http://ow.ly/CPs050uYqGB ……………………………………. ‘All rights to go to the author of the news & image as mentioned above’ -------------------------------------------
