Renewable Energy Advocacy Committee


Reduce green house gases (GHG) within Leon County.

A goal of our Renewable Energy Advocacy Committee is to create an impetus for expanding renewable energy production in our community, particularly in the area of solar power. 

Solar power generation improves environmental quality, reduces CO2 emissions, and adds diversity to our fuel sources for electricity.  It produces benefits to the grid by reducing stress on the utility distribution system and lowering transmission losses. Solar power generation also provides economic benefits to the community by providing jobs in solar technology, installation, and energy production. 

Tallahassee, as the capital of the State of Florida, should serve as a role model for solar power expansion in our state!

Check out these "Greening Our Community" articles for an understanding of what we are pursuing in this committee:
      "The Case for Renewable Energy in Tallahassee"
      "Let the Sun Shine In" 

If you have expertise in renewable energy or the leadership to help accomplish the goals of this endeavor, we welcome your contribution to this committee and to this effort.
