St. Petersburg’s Solar Initiative Will Burn Homeowners

08.30.17 12:41 PM

Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) expressed astonishment today at the ridiculous proposal St. Petersburg City Council members are considering that would force some homeowners to install costly solar panels on their property. The current proposal would force homeowners to install solar panels on new homes, homes greater than 1,100 square feet that are getting a new roof, additions, and anything considered to be part of a “major roof repair”. “This proposal could end up costing residents at least an additional $11,000 and is the epitome of crony capitalism. *The St. Petersburg City Council needs to decide whether it represents its citizens or the solar industry. * We all know that when government forces you to buy something, it’s only a good deal for the politicians and their cronies in the favored industry. *Why can’t the solar industry compete for business like everyone else? *With the City of South Miami’s recent decision to force solar on consumers, St. Petersburg is on its way to being the second Florida city to get burned. *This proposal needs*needs to be stopped before this solar-powered gravy train*leaves the station.”
