Time to Watch Florida's Renewable Portfolio

After the holidays, it's time to keep an eye out for the public hearing and conversations at the Public Service Commission, as they develop rules for a Renewable Portfolio Standard (as well as net metering and interconnection rules, which will likely be adopted by February 2008).

Of many important things to remember is that there are interests in Florida who are pushing aggressively to include coal and nuclear in the definition of renewable. (see previous post) If our sunshine state is to be a leader in renewable energy, we need to support the Governor's proposal without polluting additions.

More information on Florida's initiative from Vote Solar is here.
