More Solar for the City of Tallahassee!

Good News – Tallahassee’s City Commission at its meeting on February 25 voted unanimously to authorize utility staff to issue a Request for Proposal that will seek proposals for implementing ten megawatts of solar electricity production to add to our city’s electricity capacity!  It’s a great start toward diversification of energy sources and reduction of dependence on fossil fuel.  Thank you to our City Utilities Department and City Commissioners!

Sustainable Tallahassee’s Renewable Energy Advocacy Committee and the League of Women Voters have collaborated together to request solar expansion, and we are still advocating for incorporation of Community Solar as part of the mix.  Read Sustainable Tallahassee’s January 29 letter to City Commissioners HERE.

“Florida Waters: Fountains of Youth?
or Fountains of Yuk?”

“Florida has experienced exponential growth over the past 50+ years, with very little forethought about how the state would look with an additional 15 million residents and some 80 million annual visitors…. One of the first questions that should have been asked was where will the water for such a population surge come from and what will we do with the sewage from all these people?“  This is a must-read article by Linda Young, published in the Florida Clean Water Network on February 13, 2015..  Read her entire article HERE.

TAPP: Environmental Crossroads for Wakulla Springs

Wakulla Springs is a North Florida treasure and one of the largest fresh water springs in the world. Protecting this precious natural resource is vital for future generations.  This video by the City of Tallahassee's TAPP (Think About Personal Pollution) program provides an excellent explanation and illustration of the water quality issues that must be resolved in order to restore the health of Wakulla Springs.

Floridians’ Clean Water Declaration Campaign

Sustainable Tallahassee has signed the Floridians’ Clean Water Declaration because we value our waters and know that water is our state’s most precious - and most vulnerable - resource. 

  

The Floridians’ Clean Water Declaration Campaign is a . . .“collaborative effort driven by dozens of civic and environmental organizations from around the state. We are coming together to create a force for change – a change in the water policies of the state of Florida. By sharing ideas and resources across stakeholder lines and watersheds, we will be stronger – stronger together to command our right to clean water.”

Both organizations and individuals can sign the declaration.  Clean water is essential for our health, our environment, our economy, 
our children - for us all and our future.  For more information: http://www.wewantcleanwater.com/.
