April 27, 2022 – LANSING, Mich. – Today the Conservative Energy Network (CEN) applauds Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for vetoing House Bill 741, which would have gutted rooftop solar net metering and raised power bills for Florida families and businesses.
The following statement can be attributed to Tyler Duvelius, director of external affairs, Conservative Energy Network:
“By vetoing this anti-net metering bill today, Governor DeSantis protected Floridians’ rights to energy freedom and ensured solar energy remains a strong economic force and job creator in the Sunshine State. Net metering gives Floridians access to clean, affordable energy and provides an element of choice and competition in the energy market. The practice reduces strain on the grid and diversifies energy sources, benefiting all energy consumers, not only those with rooftop solar.”
