A Renewable Portfolio Standard A Must for Florida

  • by: Anonymous
  • recipient: Governor of Florida, Florida State House, Florida State Senate

Florida's failure to enact a Renewable Portfolio Standard which sets future goals for the production of Energy by Clean Renewable Technologies, like solar, is costing Floridians jobs, seriously harming our delicate environment, and threatening our reputation as the Sunshine State. Florida has fallen behind 29 other States, Washington D.C. and 2 U.S. Territories, who already have an RPS in place. RPS Now!

Without an RPS, Florida's Energy Policies will be controlled by the Utility Companies who favor nuclear energy and fossil fuels to meet future energy needs. Florida citizens can regain control of a clean energy future with more jobs, a cleaner environment, and regain a leadership position in utilization of Florida's #1 energy resource Solar, and deserve the title of the Sunshine State. Florida needs your support.

Feed-In Tariffs (FITs) have proven to be the world's most successful policy for delivering large quantities of renewable energy generation quickly and cheaply. It will help to develop vibrant renewable energy industries (solar-wind-biomass-geothermal-wave ) in the state of Florida that will create local jobs, economic prosperity, and better preparations for hurricanes by using our abundant Sunshine and various Renewable Resources. Our state can encourage a rapid increase in the production and use of solar/renewable energy by adopting Feed-In Tariff (FIT)/CLEAN policy that provides incentives to homeowners, businesses, utility companies, and investors to make the switch from fossil fuels to renewable/ clean energy.

Our state legislatures should enact this policy as quickly as possible to create a cleaner, healthier, and wealthier future for our communities. Please join us in asking our state legislatures in helping us to reach for our sunshine and various renewable resources!

Every where, there are folks worried about the rising cost of fuel, CO2 emissions, global warming, and depleting fossil fuel. Germany commented that there are far more installations of solar panels in their countries (with less sunshine) than here in Florida (the Sunshine State). The reason is: they have FIT (Feed-In-Tariff) for renewable energy and we, the Floridians, do not.
