Florida First in Solar Energy
Michael wants to make Florida the leader in sustainable and renewable energy.
The Sunshine State is currently rank a shameful 26th in Solar Energy Capacity. The Solar industry in Florida currently employs only 6500 people with around 450 companies total. These numbers are tragic for a state known for its Sunshine.
Michael wants to put Florida First in Solar Energy through policies that rapidly incentivize the transition from Fossil Fuels towards a greater Solar infrastructure. This transition will rapidly expand the solar market here in Florida leading to job creation and new opportunities for those searching for a new career. Michael plans to increase the amount of Solar jobs in Florida from 6,500 to over 100,000. He will create new State programs that give anyone willing to work hard the tools necessary to forge their own path and provide a brighter future for their families.
An investment statewide into Solar energy would bring an END to Fracking and increased offshore drilling. Would cut down on carbon emissions being released into the air and help keep Florida's water, air and soil pollution free.
Putting money back in the pockets of Floridians
There is a substantial amount of carbon emission being released into the air everyday. This pollution not only harms the environment but it pollutes the air we breathe. In turn leading to greater health risks, sea level rising, and global warming. Michael will use his position as Commissioner to create a Pollution Pay Program in Florida. This program would force companies to pay for the harmful pollutants they release into the air everyday. The money from this tax would then go right back into the pockets of the people being negatively affected in the form of Pollution Pay.
