This article from the Tampa Bay Times relates how an unusual coalition of groups is coming together to argue for a level playing field for solar energy.
This makes the point that renewable energy is not a right-left issue. It provides good business opportunities and good jobs. The article described the coalition as follows:
"Floridians for Solar Choice, includes tea party and Christian Coalition conservatives as well as Libertarians; liberal environmentalists such as the Southern Alliance, the Sierra Club and Greenpeace; Physicians for Social Responsibility; and the Florida Retail Federation."
