But antico, you are asking "Rightie$" to look at matter$ beyond the tip of their no$es, beyond NOW : Impo$$ible ! ! !

I saw a picture today of a workman installing a flexible ROLL of solar "fabric". . I also came across a picture of a roof fitted with solar barrel tiles.

$100 dollar bill cabbage patch is exactly what the “Sunshine State” is plowing under.

Solar energy could be bigger than tourism (until tourism benefited from it) in a state like Florida. It would fire the local economies, make them more secure in multiple ways even make electricity become an export for the state.

Instead the “people” of Florida are complicit in this wasteful injustice to themselves and citizens of America. Florida’s sunshine is a more valuable resource than coal or nuclear ever was.

Stand up to FP&L, their ilk and their corrupt Republican political sycophants! At least make your vote count for something that belongs to u not some out of state corporation.

antico -- If you possessed a "cabbage patch" which produced heads of genuine US $ 100 bills, would YOU plow it up ? ? ?

With the current Net Metering and tax status for individuals the same as businesses for Clean Energy (Distributed Electricity) we would lick the Global Warming disaster and create a revolution locally and nationally for solar energy.

Our Florida government is corrupted by the giant utility companies. Otherwise it would commission a fair study to determine if individual production of solar energy for grid connection costs the utilities more than their own or buying it from the grid. If the net effect is they save the utilities $$ then why are they pushing (defeated) Amendment 1 to charge them fees nearly doubling the cost of solar. It will be back in a Republican legislature. It’s for 1 purpose. Stop individual Distributed Energy Production, leaving in place the costly polluting system of today. There in lies the source of huge wasteful profits and their foot on our necks.

This is another example of the .01% crushing individual innovation and initiative.

If our corrupt government cared about anything other than serving their corporate masters they’d be trying to fix the impending disaster of Global Warming and sea level rise that will inundate CC, Naples, Englewood, Sarasota and Tampa Bay.

If you have thousands of islands of clean electricity production you have a grid that doesn’t have to be beefed up to force power on longer and longer grid lines. You have a more resilient grid. Anyone read about Puerto Rico’s total electric failure because one main transmission line was damaged last week? Had they Distributed energy production only the immediate area would have been affected.

We should be screaming at the federal government for the same “individual” tax deduction and costing depreciation as businesses for the cost and maintaining of clean Distributed energy production. There is a business in SWF that has millions in tax relief from the solar energy system he installed on a giant Flee Market.

Why not everyone other that to keep us enslaved to the big energy providers.
