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.
