SACE will lobby Legislators for clean renewable energy listen03/13/09 Seán Kinane
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
During this session, the Florida Legislature is likely to mandate that electricity companies generate a portion of their energy using renewable sources. But there is an effort to alter the Renewable Portfolio Standard, or RPS, to replace the word “renewable,” which does not apply to nuclear power, to the word “clean” which some advocates say does include nuclear power.
Yesterday, WMNF spoke with Nick Algee, who is with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and a Florida Organizer with 1Sky: “We are going to be helping citizens lobby Tallahassee. So essentially it’s a citizen lobby day [advocating for] clean energy and protecting Florida’s renewable energy future.”
