Press Statement: FCV’s Jonathan Webber Responds to Governor DeSantis’ Veto of HB 741

Tallahassee, FL (April 27, 2022) – FCV’s Deputy Director, Jonathan Webber, Responds to Governor DeSantis’ Veto of HB 741:

“There is no way the Sunshine State would let the legislature take away our right to affordable rooftop solar panels without a fight. That’s why tens of thousands of residents made their voices heard in opposition to HB 741 over the past few months. Rooftop solar is more popular than every politician in the state, which, no doubt, made the Governor’s decision to veto this bill an easy one. And while we celebrate the Governor’s veto, we must also keep our eye on the ultimate goal of dramatically reducing our state’s reliance on dirty fossil fuels. We await his plan to increase rooftop solar and prevent the climate crisis from further harming the people of Florida.”
