We will be discussing important issues with our legislators, such as:
Banning Fracking in Florida
This extreme extraction method poses risks to our environment and does not help the people of Florida We don't want to see what happened in Naples to happen anywhere in Florida again!
End Hidden Nuclear Fees
Let the investors pay! Floridians who purchase their energy from Investor Owned Utilities can and have been charged in advance for building and repairing their power plants, even if the power plants never get repaired or built! We want to end this tremendous consumer rip-off!
Many Floridians are unable to benefit from solar energy because of restrictive regulations. We'd like to see more consumer choice in where Floridians get their energy, and encourage job growth by ending these restrictions.
Clean Power Plan
The Clean Power Plan is the plan put forth by the EPA to cut carbon pollution from existing, coal-fired power plants in Florida and other states around the country. This plan has strong support from Floridians, 77% of whom said they supported the new EPA rules, and 69% of whom said they wanted an emphasis on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Opponents, however, are working to distort the facts and undermine the plan before it is even fully adopted. Let’s encourage or leaders to move Florida in a direction that’s cleaner, healthier, and more economical for Florida families and businesses.
