SACE will lobby Legislators for clean renewable energy listen03/13/09 SeÃ¡n 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 â€œrenewable,â€ which does not apply to nuclear power, to the word â€œcleanâ€ 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: â€œWe are going to be helping citizens lobby Tallahassee. So essentially itâ€™s a citizen lobby day [advocating for] clean energy and protecting Floridaâ€™s renewable energy future.â€
