They will be having some kind of vote this afternoon or Monday that could block our bill so call today please!
It appears that energy companies in Floridaare putting pressure on House Leadership not to allow a debate on feed in tariffs/ renewable energy dividends to take place. This is wrong and not in the spirit of civil discourse.
Rep Paige Kreegel (from Punta Gorda), Chair of the Energy & Utility Committee would normally be tasked with presenting to the House the Renewable Portfolio Standard bill – as you know Rep Kreegel is a supporter of REDs and has promised language to be included in his bill. House leadership has not authorized Kreegel to proceed and we understand is considering preventing him from allowing the House to have this debate.
The decision will likely be taken as soon as Monday next week by Larry Cretul, Speaker of the House.
Please contact by phone immediately and use the text below as an email or a letter
We are writing to you to express our support for feed in tariff/Renewable Energy Dividend legislation as part of the renewable energy portfolio standard bill.
We understand that Rep Paige Kreegel as Chair of the House Energy & Utility Committee would normally be tasked with presenting the omnibus energy bill and we hope that he can proceed with presenting such a bill to ensure there is a full and fair debate on the merits of this legislation in the House. We, as well as other members of the renewables industry, are supportive of the objectives of feed in tariffs as the best means to rapidly deploy renewables in Florida and create substantial investment and jobs at the same time as enhancing our energy and national security at the least cost to ratepayers. We understand these important issues were discussed in your recent meeting with Jim Woolsey.
Please do not allow vested energy incumbents to bury this issue and ensure the debate never takes place in the House as it is the enemy of civil discourse.
We urge you to support Rep. Kreegels initiative and allow him to proceed with bringing his bill to the Committee. We understand that this decision rests with you.
