What is happening
Charging $600 a year in fixed fees for electricity hurts everyone. It is harmful to people who have invested in rooftop solar systems and energy efficiency improvements in their homes. High fixed charges limit the amount we can save by generating our own electricity.
Solar supporters need to speak out against this outrageous attempt to deny our right to go solar.
Jacob Williams, CEO of Florida Municipal Power Agency (FMPA), has urged municipal utility leaders to impose a fixed, monthly $50 fee to make solar customers “go away.”
