PSC Notes Deadline Near for Comments on Enhancing the Development of Solar Technologies in Florida


TALLAHASSEE — The deadline is fast approaching for providing input regarding enhancing the development of solar technologies in Florida. Comments to the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) are due by 5 p.m., on Tuesday, June 23.

 

In March, Commissioners received an overview of solar energy in Florida and agreed that information from individuals, businesses, and utilities on practical ways to more effectively promote solar energy in Florida would be useful.  Since its initial call for comments on April 23, the PSC has received more than 15 comments.

 

“Solar is an important part of Florida’s fuel generation portfolio, and we encourage consumers to provide input on how to best enhance development of solar technologies in Florida,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham.  “The comments so far generally reflect the why we need more solar, but we also need comments that clearly articulate how the PSC can cost effectively promote more solar power.”

 

For further information on submitting comments or to view the questions to be answered, visit www.FloridaPSC.com and access Solar Energy in Florida-Request for Comments under Hot Topics. Comments are due by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23 and are limited to 20 pages. All submitted comments will be public record and posted to the PSC’s website.
