Florida’s warm climate, 1,200 miles of coastline, and natural beauty make the Sunshine State a fine home and a popular travel destination, but one that is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change — from sea-level rise, to higher temperatures and stronger storm surges – that are already being felt in local communities. These risks and available opportunities demand that the state move towards a clean energy economy. While the Sunshine State is starting to tap into its vast solar energy potential – as the state’s utilities scale up development of large-scale solar projects, and rooftop solar continues to be adopted by families and businesses, there remains enormous opportunity to accelerate solar development, energy efficiency, and electric vehicle adoption in order to move to a cleaner, lower cost, lower risk energy future.
