Florida voters have approved Amendment 4 on Tuesday's primary election, which gives businesses tax exemptions for solar, or renewable energy source devices, and would expand the use of solar energy across the state.

The amendment on the ballot is titled, “Solar Devices or Renewable Energy Source Devices: Exemption From Certain Taxation and Assessment."

Sixty percent of votes were needed to pass the amendment into law in Florida.
