This year’s Annual Meeting/Celebration was a packed house, featuring a lively forum on the two Florida solar amendments that may be on the 2016 ballot. A speaker from each of the proposed amendments made remarks, followed by rebuttals and audience Q&A. Our speakers were:
Susan Glickman, the Florida Director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE), represented the Floridians for Solar Choice Amendment. Susan has a background in running political campaigns and also directs Southern Alliance for Clean Energy’s Action Fund in the Sunshine State.
Matthew Carter II represented the Smart Solar Amendment. Matthew is a former Chair of the Public Service Commission and a current member of the Board of Governors of the State University System of Florida.
The audience had many questions, and there is clearly a need for more on this subject over the next several months. As of Nov 2015, the Solar Choice amendment language has been approved by the Supreme Court, and the Smart Solar amendment language is being reviewed by the Court.
Debbie Gibson and the Community Carbon Fund committee members received these recognitions, and Debbie gave a summary of the CCF, how it functions and the current projects.
