It's not the dawning of the age of Aquarius, but solar power supporters want Florida lawmakers to let the sun shine.

They claim those same lawmakers are blocking the sun by unfair subsidies for other power industries.

They say a level playing field for solar would create economic opportunities to save money and create jobs.

"In just the last three years, solar has come down about 70 percent in cost," said Susan Glickman, the Florida Director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. "So that myth about solar power being more expensive just isn't true any more," she said.

Glickman says the trick for getting solar is financing.

She says homeowners can pay for it over ten years and have 20 years or free electricity.
