A new poll finds that more than three out of four Florida voters (77%) support net metering. The poll was commissioned by The Alliance for Solar Choice (TASC), a coalition of rooftop solar installers.

According to TASC, Harstad Strategic Research Inc. surveyed 801 likely Florida voters in February. TASC says the results show that bipartisan support for net metering and rooftop solar energy exceeds 75% across all key voter groups in the state. Thirteen percent of voters oppose net metering, with 10% unsure, TASC notes.

In addition, TASC reports that 71% of Floridians oppose changing the existing rooftop solar policy by imposing a new fee on net-metered solar customers.
