Renewables and the Florida Public Service Commission

The Florida Public Service Commission has issued a new recommendation that would require utilities to produce 20 percent of their power from renewable resources by 2041. The plan is much less aggressive than Governor Charlie Crist's proposal, which calls for the same amount by 2020.  Recommendations include a fee of $2.40 on resident's electric bill to promote renewable energy.  The plan would also require utilities to spend up to two percent of their annual revenues on renewable energy, such as solar, wind or bioproducts.
