Contributions to Consumers for Smart Solar fizzled out in July.

The group spent $615 between July 9 and July 15. All told, the committee has spent more than $13.8 million.

Consumers for Smart Solar ended the most recent fundraising period with nearly $2.2 million cash on hand.

The amendment, which is supported by the state’s major electric companies, is on the November ballot. It needs 60 percent support to become law.
