Green for Going Green

July 10th, 2008 by flanews

Soon your state government could pay you for going green. The Governors Action team on energy and climate change met in Tallahassee Thursday. The action team is discussing ways to conserve energy and cut down on green house gas emissions. One idea is to offer tax breaks and grants to people who add solar panels and other green technologies to their homes. Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection Michael Sole said people can start doing things now to help save energy and the environment.

This is a responsibility of every Floridian. The things that we can do at the home the things we can do at the office. How we use our vehicles to reduce the amount of driving, or improve our vehicles fuel efficiency. These are things we can do to help reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, said Sole.

The Action team will meet again in August. They will present their energy saving plan to the Governor in October.
