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 Floridaâ€™s energyÂ contract up for renewal in December 2014, we call upon UF to be a cleanÂ energy champion. Powering the University of Florida with 100% clean energyÂ will allow UF to successfully achieve our carbon neutrality goal by 2025, andÂ the contract renewal is an opportunity for the University of Florida to be aÂ leader in driving a clean energy economy. Mr. Reynolds, We demand you be aÂ clean energy champion, requiring all utility contract bids to allow theÂ University of Florida to achieve 100% clean energy power by 2020.â€
The Executive Committee voted to endorse this petition.
