Advocates of effective renewable energy policies will gather at the State Capitol on March 24th, 2009 to show their support for the most effective renewable energy policy our legislature can adopt: Renewable Energy Dividends. Join renewable energy businesses, experts, and advocates, including manufacturers and representatives from the world’s largest renewable energy industry companies. Replicating the success of Gainesville, Florida and introducing a Renewable Energy Dividend policy will bring widespread economic recovery and job creation to Florida, while establishing energy security and environmental stewardship.

Great to find you and to see you are working on getting Florida going. I work with the MSEV Coalition and would like to build bridges of cooperation with you on getting MSV laws in place. Our Coalition has already submitted a petition to NTSA for federal regulations to support the state laws. It has been denied and we are organizingf for the next round. It will take lots of us working together to get this job done.
Please get in touch so we can coordinate. 310-450-7419
We have members in Florida that we can connect you with.
We would also like to build bridges with the Pickens Plan group as more vehicle than pure EVs would fit into the MSV picture.
I'm interested in how effective the current distribution network is in Florida and what would need to be done to allow for natural gas alternatives for automobiles. Last I checked on this issue, there was really no infrastructure in place for this.
If we can solve the national electrical distribution problems which would allow wind power to boost our energy supply, what will it take for the next step - to make a robust enough distribution system for natural gas to replace oil?
We have been pushing for a light rail line to move people quickly into city center, but once there it would be nice if we had a fleet of rental EVs to move riders to their final destinations.
A fleet of same type vehicles would offer personal transport at lowest per mile cost as these vehicles could be designed for easy service with interchangeable parts. Customers would be tracked with GPS and charged time and distance until vehicle gets dropped off. All other vehicles could have restricted access to downtown, and eventually be banned altogether.
Wondered if anyone was planning something like this.
Hi Bill. Great work. I would suggest we contact CONA , Counsel of Neighborhood Associations. I belive they have joined forces through out Florida. Sen. Mike Fassano can get you some contact information.
MSEVs would be ideal for seniors and many others living in or near urban areas. Much or our commuting is less than 50 miles per day and is near our homes and these vehicles would provide an ideal method of getting around.
