Important: Get the Balance of your rebate payment
There are two identical bills in both the House and the Senate waiting to get to the floor. They are currently at rest in the Energy & Utilities Subcommittee. They will need your help to make it to the floor and they will need your help to get passed.
We are calling on all of our customers and partners to help send a message to our legislators that people who were eligible for the Florida Solar Rebate program should be paid their full amount. Over 30,000 people are receiving this message directly from us and we hope that you all join in on the fight.
Pressure from the American public on our legislators and big business is working. Your voice can make a difference. Look at what happened with Bank of America’s $5 customer charge. Occupy Wall Street has gotten national attention for their message. The internet regulation bill known a SOPA was killed when Google, Facebook and Wikipedia mobilized their users. The voice of a single person is turning into many and change is occurring.

“To my Honorable State Representative,
I am one of the over 12,000Floridahome owners and business owners who invested in solar energy anticipating the State ofFloridawould pay me a rebate on my investment. I helped grow the clean energy economy in this State through your program. My installer was able to pay fair wages and train new workers and for a period of time grow their company and as they promised I saved money on my electric bill. The only promise that was not kept was by my Elected Officials to pay me a rebate. Please make good on the promises and support HB 1283 and SB1864 so that I can finally be paid 100% of my rebate amount that is owed to me.”

“A few years ago I invested in solar energy for my home under the State solar rebate program. I am sure I have told you about it. Well, long story short, I need your help because there is a Bill in the House and Senate to approve money for funding the remaining amount they owe to me. It has been 2 years since they have only paid me 50% and I could really use your help making my voice heard.
Can you please send a quick email to your representative? Please ask him or her to support HB 1283 and SB1864. Let them know that you have a friend who asked you to email them and you will be watching their vote.
