I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for Florida to welcome Solar Energy into our state!!! Then Vote “NO” on Amendment 1 in November!!! Reasons are explained in the posts and videos in the two posts below (please click & view):

  1. This article contains material that would help to explain why Amendment 1 is anti-solar: Amendment 1 May Block Out The Sun (Similar measure in Amendment 1 has already destroyed solar industry in the state of Nevada. We do not want a repeat of what happened in Nevada here in Florida!!!)
  2. Amendment 1 part (a) promises the right Floridians already possess (the right to own or lease solar equipments on their property) but prevents Floridians from selling any excess solar energy produced to be sold to others outside of the property owner. Amendment 1 part (b) may potentially allow utilities to create another fee to be charged to solar installation owners or solar power users even if these solar power users are not customers of the utilities. So a votes of “yes” on Amendment 1 would: a. establish constitutional right rather than keep it statutory. b. eliminate free market potential for electricity c. create assumption that solar power users are subsidized by utility customers. Passing Amendment 1 would potentially destroy the solar businesses in Florida (as a similar measure did in Nevada).
  3. This article helps to explain why we need Fair Value of Solar: We Need Fair Value of Solar, Not Amendment 1

Especially after the recent visit from Hurricane Matthew, it is critical for us to promote both utility scale and distributed solar throughout our state and our U.S.A.! This is not only for the fact that Florida needs to live up to its name sake, The Sunshine State, but the fact that much of our state revenues depend on tourism, and therefore our air and water quality plays an important part of our state’s income. Furthermore, the climate change or warming of our planet earth would speed up the process of our disappearing coastal cities (esp. Miami). This is another reason why Florida should make strong effort in supporting solar energy to flourish, to slow down the climate change and warming of our planet. Don’t forget the fact that solar energy is the source of energy that cannot be exclusively possessed by few nations on earth. Therefore widespread use of solar energy would prevent potential warfare among nations for the sake of fuel. Finally, it is undeniable that we are progressing toward the Clean/Renewable Energy Future, whether the politicians like it or not. The sooner our politicians accept this fact and learn to adapt to the Clean/Renewable Energy Age, the better off we all will be, in terms of state economy, business, individual standard of living, and our beautiful environment of state of Florida .

Therefore, it is particularly frustrating that my and your dollars spent on our utility bills are being spent on promotion for something that will potentially destroy the solar industry in Florida, the Amendment 1! So, please bear with me for continuing to post about Amendment 1, reminding Floridians to VOTE NO ON AMENDMENT 1 IN NOVEMBER !!! I may not have multi-million dollar advertising budget, but I do have Windermere Sun….so, let’s help our beloved Florida to be worthy of its name sake by spreading this message of need to Vote “NO” on Amendment 1 in November ! We don’t want the solar growth and solar industry to be destroyed as it did in Nevada by a similar measure in Amendment 1.

If you care about The Sunshine State and would like to insure our worthiness of this name, want to see solar industry and economy to flourish in Florida, forever be able to enjoy our wonderful air quality, and usher Florida into the Clean/Renewable Energy Age, VOTE NO ON AMENDMENT 1 IN NOVEMBER !!! Because……

  1. Amendment 1 May Block Out The Sun

  2. We Need Fair Value of Solar, Not Amendment 1

and share this post and Windermere Sun with others!

An Urgent Interruption-Vote On Debt Ceiling

Share

Dear Friends, Family, Neighbors,

If you are in favor of renewable/CLEAN energy, please sign the petition page showing support for FIT/CLEAN Program at http://sunisthefuture.net/?page_id=1065 Thank you.

Sorry about the departure from our usual discussions on renewable or solar energy, but I simply have to get this off my chest and I urge you to do the same. Last night I wrote/emailed my State Representative to do the right thing and this is what I wrote, very simply:

Dear Congressman/Representative Webster,

I am a mother and an educator, how can I/we teach our children, students, or future generation(s) that they should pay their bills if our country/government does not do so. Please do the right thing by having our country/government paying the bills. There is simply no other way around this one!

Respectfully,
Susan Sun Nunamaker

My fellow Floridians and Americans, since the House of Representatives (our Senate has no problem with paying bills)  will be voting on the issue regarding debt ceiling/paying bills before Tuesday (Aug. 2, 2011) of next week, there is not sufficient time to snail mail our Representatives, so I urge you to either call or email your respective Representatives, asking them to do the right thing by having our US government to pay for the bills.

You may find your respective Representatives’ contact information via this web site: https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml
