In most states, it’s legal for property owners to sell home-generated solar power to others. This is called a “power-purchase agreement”. But thanks to a state law that favors fossil-fuel monopolies, Florida remains one of the last four states where power-purchase agreements are illegal.

Myth: Renewable energy gets subsidies whereas fossil fuels don’t.

Renewable energy also receives subsidies, but not to the same degree.
