Let’s Turn Up The Heat For “Solar-FIT For Sunshine State” petition

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click on red link below)

Hi,

Thank you for signing Solar-FIT For Sunshine State  petition (http://signon.org/sign/solar-fit-for-sunshine?source=c.fwd&r_by=7291164). With your help, we’ve reached 35 signers!

Now it’s critical that we kick this campaign up a notch. Can you take a moment make a phone call to The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott? Click here to find the phone numbers you need: http://www.commoncause.org/siteapps/advocacy/search.aspx?c=dkLNK1MQIwG&b=4860375.

When you call, you don’t need to say a lot—just reiterate the main message of the petition, which is:

“Feed-In Tariffs (FITs) have proven to be the world’€™s most successful policy for delivering large quantities of renewable energy generation quickly and cheaply. It will help to develop vibrant solar energy industry in the state of Florida that will create local jobs, economic prosperity, and better preparations for hurricanes by using our abundant Sunshine. Our state can encourage a rapid increase in the production and use of solar energy by adopting Feed-In Tariff (FIT)/CLEAN policy that provides incentives to homeowners, businesses, utility companies, and investors to make the switch from fossil fuels to renewable/ clean energy. Our state legislatures should enact this policy as quickly as possible to create a cleaner, healthier, and wealthier future for our communities. Please join us in asking our state legislatures in helping us to reach for our sunshine!”

Then, help me keep track of how many calls have been made by clicking here:

Thank you for taking a stand on this important issue

Let’s Support Solar! Let’s Support FIT!

Dear Friends & Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click on red links below)

I.  If you are interested in supporting the petition for national FIT (Feed-In-Tariff), an incentive policy that is designed to accelerate the development of renewable generation projects up to 20 MW in size including solar, wind, biomass, and wave, please click on http://www.fitpetition.org

II.  If you are interested in supporting solar/renewable energy bill in state of Florida, please contact Senator Geraldine F “Geri” Thompson at: http://www.flsenate.gov/Senators/s12, District Office: 511 West South Street Suite 204, Orlando, FL 32805, (407)245-1511, and show her your appreciation and support for having made the effort in introducing a renewable energy bill, despite all obstacles.

III. If you are interested in supporting Solar Initiative in any of the states other than  Florida, please click on www.votesolar.org and check out “Policy Guidelines”,”Federal Initiatives”, “State Initiatives”, “Local Initiatives”, “Shared Solar” in the left hand margin.

————————————————————————————————————-

Something special for residents of Florida: please approach/write our state legislators to ask for implementation of these measures, below:

1.  Setting Solar/Renewable Energy Goal for the state of Florida. For a better understanding of some historical background of Florida Solar Market and Policy Issues, please take a look at our video clip of SPI2012 below:

2.  Implementing an effective Feed-In-Tariff policy (otherwise also known as the Renewable Energy Dividend Policy) that will be inclusive of small users as well as large-scale users.  Feed-In-Tariff had proven to be the most effective incentive program/policy that would speed up the implementations of solar PV .  The goal of  Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) is to offer cost-based compensation to renewable energy producers, providing the price certainty and long-term contracts that help finance renewable energy investments.

3.  Streamline the permitting process of solar PV and solar thermal so to reduce the cost and amount of time in completing the process. Residents at  Broward County are now able to get a solar energy system permit online in just half an hour;please refer to Jefferery Halsey, Broward County of Florida’s Director of Pollution Prevention, Remediation, and Air Quality Division during the video clip at our Feb. 22, 2013 post of Sun Is The Future.

4.  It seems feasible/optimal to introduce regulation to require solar thermal (solar hot water heating systems) when/where it is already a foregone conclusion that this would be an economically feasible approach in building design.  Perhaps it is time to start the discussion in considering implementing this as part of the building code.

Let’s work together for a bright and renewable future!

I would suggest that all of you out there who are Florida residents and are concerned about our energy future to also visit this site, http://billnelson.senate.gov/contact/email.cfm and write a similar letter to remind Senator Nelson of our concern.  For those of you from other states please refer to this site –> http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm and please approach/write your respective district legislators regarding 4 items above.  Together, we will be able to gather enough strength and voice !  For Florida residents, you may find your respective District Representatives and District Senators at these two sites,

http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Representatives/representatives.aspx and    http://www.flsenate.gov/Senators/

Please visit: votesolar.org and fitpetition.org
