We receive incredibly high levels of sunlight that could support a great solar power project, not just for us, but potentially neighboring counties or states. Our tidal power could also be harnessed.
Supporting solar here in Florida is not only a good energy policy but also great for creating good jobs.
Energy obtained by those methods should allow for selling power back to and freeing from Corp. sources, better for the environment, save people money. Would you encourage new homes built that way?
In a state where we depend on our clean environment for tourism and quality of life and are very susceptible to sea level rise, this is very important to all Floridians - we need to know!
What would you suggest the Senate do to incentivize the needed transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy?
We must act boldly now on reducing carbon emissions and pour money int wind and solar or another earth friendly energy source (not nuclear! :)
Regardless of whether or not you believe in climate change, can we agree that we all prefer cleaner air and water and that working towards cleaner energy capture is a priority?
Global warming is real!
I have lived here in florida for the past 11 years...most of the time it's very windy here especially by the seashore...yet we do not have a alternative power source what would you do to correct this.
because of the immediate and long term deadly affects of climate change, and because renewable energy will take energy costs away for all people , which will also stimulate the economy
How would you encourage homeowners and businesses to invest in solar and other alternative energy resources other than fossil fuels?
Florida is know as the sunshine state and ranks 3rd in the nation for potential solar power, yet It ranks 14th out of solar output.
Floridians for Solar Choice have faced unfair practices by polluting energy companies to confuse the public about the best means of encouraging solar power. ALL people should have equal access in USA

Many states have established arcane laws aimed at suppressing solar power use to the obvious benefit of power companies like FPL. We need Federal solar protection to ban these tariffs, fees & taxes.
Florida is the sunshine state, and it is shocking to a number of us that there seems to be no solar power initiatives. Please explain what you would do with regards to alternative energy, thank you.
My parents in florida live in a retirement community and they are not allowed to install solar panels. There are strict laws governing using the sun to power the "sunshine" state. This must be fixed.

Will you, despite your donors, take a proactive stance in ensuring citizens have the easiest time possible installing solar panels and living off the grid?
We must be allowed to lease solar installations from any company we choose and to freely draw electricity from that equipment.
What actions will you take to support and reward the development and use of clean, sustainable energy sources?
Legislation and public sentiment is growing against the use of sentient beings used in captivity and for profit. Would you support the ending of animals in captivity for profit.
