Florida needs to get its act together
Florida seems to have decided that the EPA’s Clean Power Act doesn’t apply to them, as regulators recently voted to destroy the state’s energy efficiency goals by over 90 percent. They also opted to let their solar rebate program expire.

There has to be some way to provide a cost-effective means of conservation, but they’re refusing to look. Florida could benefit by spending a little extra money now for big payoffs later. There are a variety of options to consider, but legislators are doing nothing but sticking fingers in their ears.
Come on, Florida. Grow up.
