Economy of Florida:



Florida & alternative Energy


Governor Crist recently met with Mr. T. Boone Pickens at the Clinton Global Initiative to discuss renewable energy opportunities in Florida. To date, Florida has taken a very proactive position to support renewable energy, alternative fuels and other clean technologies such as compressed natural gas.  Since the creation of the Florida Renewable Energy Technologies and Energy Efficiency Act in 2006, which includes rebates, grants, and other economic incentives for energy investments, Florida has contributed millions of dollars to stimulate research, development and commercialization of renewable energy.


There are a number of solar energy projects under development in Florida positioning it as the second leading state in the nation for solar energy production.  Additionally, a one megawatt solar panel system will be installed on the Orange County Convention Center making it the largest rooftop solar panel installation in the Southeastern United



In addition, Florida is investing in wind technology.  Florida Power and Light is committed to the viability of large-scale wind generation in Florida.  Up to six utility-scale wind turbines will generate approximately 13 megawatts of electricity.  The second project, constructed by Progress Energy, will look at small-scale wind energy generation using turbines with a smaller capacity for businesses and residences.


Like the Pickens Plan, Florida is currently considering all transportation fuel options available, including compressed natural gas. The Governor's Energy Office is also working with the state's Clean Cities Coalitions to promote alternative fuels and advanced vehicles, fuel blends, fuel economy, hybrid vehicles, and idle reduction. There

are currently 15 compressed natural gas stations in Florida that primarily serve local government and private business fleets.  This office will continue to work with other interested parties to increase the availability of compressed natural gas in the marketplace.
