Cheyenne Herron is a news intern at WUSF for the fall of 2016.
She is a junior at the University of South Florida studying mass communications with a concentration on public relations. She is interested in journalism because she loves meeting people and learning about what they do.

Florida voters recently rejected Amendment 1, which would have restricted the reselling of energy produced by solar panels to electric companies - a process known as net metering. But despite being one of the nation's sunniest states, Florida lags behind other states when it comes to solar capacity.
