Commissioner Nikki Fried Was Right. Florida's Current Energy Efficiency Process Is Obsolete.
Following today's vote of the Florida Public Service Commission on energy efficiency standards, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo issued the following statement:
"Commissioner Nikki Fried was right — Florida's current energy efficiency process is obsolete. Today, the Florida Public Service Commission agreed with her by voting 4-1 against allowing utilities to set energy conservation goals near zero. Floridians are fortunate to have a true champion fighting to deliver real energy efficiency standards and standing up for Florida's energy future!"
In September, Fried pushed for a new process to set energy efficiency standards for Florida utilities. Last month, Fried hosted the first state conference on energy and climate change in 11 years.
