SSJ endorses Gainesville Loves Mountains petition


At the November Executive Committee meeting, Jason Fults of Gainesville Loves Mountains presented their petition to encourage the University of Florida to reconsider their contract with Duke Energy. Their petition reads:

“With the University of Florida’s energy contract up for renewal in December 2014, we call upon UF to be a clean energy champion. Powering the University of Florida with 100% clean energy will allow UF to successfully achieve our carbon neutrality goal by 2025, and the contract renewal is an opportunity for the University of Florida to be a leader in driving a clean energy economy. Mr. Reynolds, We demand you be a clean energy champion, requiring all utility contract bids to allow the University of Florida to achieve 100% clean energy power by 2020.”

The Executive Committee voted to endorse this petition.
