Kudos to South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard and the City Council for voting to mandate solar energy for buildings in South Miami. This is a big step for any city to make.
Every solar panel put on a roof takes pressure off the aging Turkey Point nuclear power plant. Some say it could stop the megawatt power lines from being built along the U.S. 1 corridor.
Imagine solar providing the energy demand during peak (daytime) hours for most of South Florida industries, assuming most properties participate.
