Dear Friends in the Sunshine State:

Polluter-backed utility giants are trying to trick Floridians into backing Amendment 1 -- their plan to choke off residential solar power under the guise of "helping" solar.1

That's why I'm coming to Florida this week to support Floridians for Solar Choice's efforts to set the record straight and stop Amendment 1.

With Election Day next week, time is running out to stop Amendment 1 from ruining solar energy in Florida. Will you join me in volunteering to help inform voters?

Florida has huge potential to be a superpower for clean, renewable energy. Solar power in particular has so much promise that it's right in the state nickname!

But big utility companies want to limit customer-owned solar energy in the Sunshine State, because it challenges their lucrative monopoly on power. That's why big corporations like Duke Energy and Florida Power & Light have poured tens of millions of dollars into trying to deceive Floridians into supporting Amendment 1 under the falsehood that it's "pro-solar" (it's definitely not).2

If you support clean, renewable energy -- and more power to people -- join me in spreading the word that Amendment 1 must be defeated. There are many ways to get involved. Sign up to volunteer -- it's easy!

Both solar energy and fighting climate change are critical to Florida's future. With so much focus on the other issues at stake in this watershed election, it's so important that voters learn the truth about Amendment 1 before it's too late.

Let's protect solar in Florida,

P.S. This Thursday, we're joining with Floridians for Solar Choice at a dozen press events to raise awareness about the threat posed by Amendment 1. Can you join us at one? Check the box on this form and we'll let you know where the nearest event is to you.
