Vote Yes on Amendment 4 in August

Amendment 4 will amend Florida's Constitution to exempt the value of solar panels and other renewable energy equipment from both the tangible personal property tax and the real property tax.

Florida has the most solar energy potential east of the Mississippi, yet it is not a leader on solar power. Vote YES on Amendment 4 to lower bills and allow solar energy to flourish in Florida.


To become law, Amendment 4 must be approved by a YES vote of at least 60 percent on the Aug. 30 primary ballot.
