Florida Governor Proposes $2.1B for Clean Energy, Water

cristFlorida Governor Charlie Crist has proposed that the Sunshine State put $2.1 billion into efforts to promote clean energy and protect the state’s resources.

The budget elements would also address water supply and some conservation efforts, including Everglades restoration, reports the Gov Monitor.

“As we continue restoring America’s Everglades and investing in renewable energy, Floridians will gain a cleaner and safer environment that will endure for generations to come,” Crist said, in a statement.

The funding includes an extra $10 million in solar energy rebates, on top of $14.4 million provided to the state by federal funding.

Florida will also spend:

– $10 million on solar for schools and shelters.

– $10 million in loans for solar energy for water heating.

– $4 million in matching grants for compressed natural gas fueling facilities.

– $36 million for the Florida Energy Opportunity Fund.

– $10 million in Florida Clean Energy Grants.

The state is proposing spending $20 million in matching funds on projects related to wastewater management and water quality programs.
