Yeah, that’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s rendition of Florida governor Charlie Crist. He needs to come out of that dark closet. Solar energy is a total foreigner in there and citizens from all over Florida have signed a petition to urge him out. They want him to sign the Florida Solar Roofs Initiative into law. Two weeks ago, a solar advocacy group called Vote Solar delivered more than 10,000 votes to him. If enacted, the initiative creates targets to surpass California in solar roofs per capita. That’s a pretty big deal. Additional goals are to utilize PV and solar water heating for at least 2% of the state’s energy portfolio by 2020. The Florida Solar Roofs Initiative will generate enough zero-pollution solar energy to eliminate 20 coal-fired power plants! Will he come out of the closet? Stay tuned.
