Solar Power Southeast: Doing Business in Florida


Florida has drawn national attention for its solar market potential and high-profile political campaigns over policy barriers to new growth. Shumaker’s Chris Delp will speak in the Doing Business in Florida session on Thursday, May 11, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. in Atlanta, Georgia at Solar Power Southeast. Panelists will discuss efforts this year to implement Amendment 4’s constitutional language to allow property tax relief for solar, as well as updates on other legislative issues, such as consumer protection and third-party ownership. Panelists will also highlight projects under development for investor-owned and municipally owned utilities in Florida and recent proceedings before the Florida Public Service Commission.
