How great for Bernie to file SOLAR legislation on the heels of Florida's AG filing suit against it

Florida's AG is filing a suit on the ballot language for solar as she did the ACA, gay marriage, and the rest. The solar initiative by ballot petition, is moving forward as the legislature won't hear the bill. Ninety two percent want the policy that already exists in other states.

Florida is one of five states that does not allow you to contract with a third party utility for energy, or the price of, for purchasing or selling back the excess.

It is the southern states in this monopoly stranglehold! The southeastern states, that are boiling.

Florida is one of the TOP THREE STATES IN THE COUNTRY with the most rooftop solar advantage! Yet, you must have lots of money for a panel, and your selling back is to DUKE Energy. At the lowest price. The panels that you see in Florida, are for hot water heaters and pools. Not household electricity. It's criminal. Florida now has small homes hitting 500-600 a month! This is not sustainable. The monopoly must stop.

Oh how Florida will love Bernie Sanders, when he refers to the Florida residents who need the policy the rest of the states have, on the heels of the AG again, trying to stop the will of the people. They all take campaign dollars from Duke Energy. They are owned.

Bernie can save Florida, and win there as well. How stupid of Florida's AG, and how smart of Bernie to go into his senate office, and file legislation. The voters of Florida will now be heard.

Thanks Bernie!

A ballot petition that would allow those who generate electricity from the sun to sell the power directly to other consumers moved to its final legal hurdle Friday with a request by Florida's attorney general for Supreme Court review. (Again, Fla is one of five states that does not allow this!)

Bernie's Bill !

Don't these republicans in Florida understand that energy is to be free from the God given Sun?
