You won’t believe who now supports #Solar

Conservatives aren’t typically in favor of green energy, or environmental conservation. which is why one group of Tea Partiers are turning heads in Florida. The group normally concerned with the nation’s tax woes somehow has grown a soft spot for solar power. So much so in fact that they are actively seeking to cut utilities out of the game by collecting signatures for passing a constitutional amendment to allow citizens to sell their electricity to their friends and neighbors without selling it back to the utility’s grid first. Something like this would essentially bypass a century’s old system of electrical management for the open source generation of electricity and distribution. We’re really not sure how this whole thing will play out, but it’s certainly an interesting concept, and definitely something we can get behind.
