Florida Farm to Energy Act
the Family Farm" while creating for the first time ever a
sustainable renewable energy market in Florida.
The State of
Florida now has the opportunity to attract hundreds of millions of
private investment dollars in to the renewable energy industry,
creating long term jobs, stimulating local economies from Miami to
Orlando to Pensacola, and establishing energy security through
distributed generation and a strong, secure, reliable electricity
Farm to Energy Act will establish a long term dedicated funding source
for widespread renewable energy facilities to connect to the
electricity grid and sell the power that they produce at an
economically viable rate. With the backing of a long term, bankable
contract, investments in renewable energy facilities will pour in
to the State of Florida, as they have in other states with proper
policies in place.
agricultural community, who currently faces painfully high costs
of waste and by-product mitigation, can now turn those by-products
into an energy producing, income generating asset. Commercial and
residential properties across the state with vacant land and available
roofspace would also be able to turn their property into an income
generating facility through installation of solar and other renewable
energy technologies. Tens of thousands of jobs would be created
upon the immediate impact of this policy, including construction,
installation, finance, real estate, manufacturing, audit &
inspection, regulation, architecture, roofing, electrical, and many
more. Florida would not only be attracting private investment in
development, infrastructure and manufacturing, it would also be keeping
the millions of dollars spent out of the state every day on energy
production and imports, thereby keeping Florida's money in state and
working in Florida.
implementation of the Florida Farm to Energy Act, Florida would begin
it's fight back to become a leader in the country for renewable energy
production. Solar, wind, biomass and other renewables would be
available as production facilities, creating for the first time
ever a renewable energy marketplace in the State of Florida.
