Florida to Lead the Way in Energy Conservation

April 30th, 2008 by flanews

Lawmakers have sent a precedent setting green bill to the Governor. Today the state Senate approved legislation aimed at cutting greenhouse gases and increasing ethanol use. The bill would also require new state, city and county buildings to be more energy efficient. Senator Burt Saunders says the bill will make Florida the nations clean energy leader.

“We’re going to make sure that all our public buildings are green buildings to the greatest extent that we can. We’re going to start making sure that the vehicles that we use at the state level are energy efficient, said Saunders. We’re going to, as the Governor said, lead by example. And I think over the next several years, you’ll see green technologies moving into the state, you’ll see universities doing more research and I think you’ll see a great movement toward greener buildings and greener homes.”

The bill will also set up incentives and education for businesses to go green.
