STATEMENT BY CHAIRMAN LISA POLAK EDGAR REGARDING GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST’S CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT


TALLAHASSEE —

"The Florida Public Service Commission welcomed the opportunity to join academia, scientists, environmentalists, and members of the business community during Governor Crist's Climate Change Summit."

"The Florida Public Service Commission recognizes Governor Crist's plan to reduce carbon emissions, promote conservation, and encourage renewable energy use. The Commission will continue to work cooperatively with the Governor and all interested parties, consistent with our statutory authority."

"Using renewable resources is an important component of diversified generation for our state's energy future.  A well balanced fuel supply--increasing the use of alternative energy sources while decreasing dependence on fossil fuels--enhances supply reliability and price stability for consumers."
