Charlie Crist on Energy & Oil

 


$200M package for solar, wind, & biofuel from citrus

What Florida has done for biotech, it can also do for clean tech. That's why I'm recommending a $200 million economic development package for solar, wind and other renewable energy, and to promote biofuels in Florida and encourage alternative fuels such as ethanol. We have the opportunity to enhance the use of this cleaner fuel, while also providing a broader market for sugar cane and citrus waste. [We have] explored non-food sources of ethanol production in Farm to Fuel efforts.

Propose almost $70 million on alternative energy development

I have proposed almost 70 million dollars in my budget to foster the development and use of alternative energy sources and fuels in our state, including ethanol and biodiesel fuels for our cars and solar power for our homes. With these measured steps, we can begin to achieve three important goals: addressing global climate change, promoting Florida agriculture, and weaning our country from reliance on foreign oil.
