King tide sets stage for climate talks in South Florida


“[Former Vice President Al] Gore directed his harshest criticism of Florida at the state’s policy on solar power, which he said robs the state of one of the best solutions to combat climate change. Florida is one of just four states that only allows the sale of electricity from one of its four major utilities but is ranked third for its potential to produce solar energy. That prevents any solar companies from installing panels and covering the cost by having customers pay for the electricity they produce — the most widely-used model for the pricey system.”
