FLORIDA, June 28, 2017 - Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed a bill into law which will limit property valuation tax on renewable energy improvements. Senate Bill 90, introduced by Senator Jeff Brandes, exempts 80 percent of the consumers’ assessed value of a renewable energy source. “The state’s market doubled last year and we expect this new law will help Florida become one of the top five solar states in short order,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, Solar Energy Industries Association president and CEO. Florida’s solar market grew by more than 200 percent in 2016 while solar jobs surged 25 percent, according to GTM Research and the SEIA’s U.S. Solar Market Insight Report.
