The Florida Renewable Energy Tax Exemption Amendment was not on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Florida as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have revised the legislature's ability to exempt the value of renewable energy source devices from consideration in determining the assessed value of real property by removing a restriction that limits such exemptions to residential property only and, in lieu, limiting such exemptions to end-use customers in situations where the renewable energy device is utilized to offset the customer’s electricity demands.[1]

The amendment was introduced into the Florida Legislature by Sen. Jeff Brandes (R-22) as Senate Joint Resolution 916.[1]
