ReThink Energy Florida's 2015 Lobby Days
Go Green on St. Patrick's Day at the Capitol!

ReThink Energy Florida will be hosting a Lobby Day on Tuesday, March 17 2015 at the Florida Capitol.  And we'll have a Citizen Lobbyist Training Session the evening before, to help you effectively get your message across.  Please come talk to your legislators about any or all of these important energy issues:

* Banning Fracking In Florida: This extreme extraction method poses risks to our environment and does not benefit the people of Florida.  We don't want to see what happened in Naples happen anywhere in Florida again!

* Encouraging Energy Freedom: Many Floridians are unable to benefit from solar energy because of restrictive regulations.  We'd like to see more consumer choice in where Floridians get their energy, and encourage job growth by ending these restrictions

* End Hidden Nuclear Fees - Let The Investors Pay! Floridians who purchase their energy from Investor Owned Utilities can and have been charged in advance for building and repairing their power plants, even if the power plants never get repaired or built!  We want to end this tremendous consumer rip-off!

Let's take action to make the Sunshine State a leader in energy achievements!

Energy Whiz

ReThink Energy Florida is partnering up with the UF/IFAS Leon County Extension Office for the Annual regional Energy Whiz Olympics here in Tallahassee on January 31, 2015 at the UF/IFAS Leon County Extension Office (610 Paul Russell Road). The event brings together kids from grades 3-12 who showcase their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) knowledge and creative thinking in a Junior Solar Sprint race (grades 3-8) and Solar Energy Cook Off (grades 4-12). A team of 3-4 students must work creatively to create either a solar powered model car or a solar powered oven. The cars in the Solar Sprint Race will be raced and judged by a panel based on appearance, craftsmanship, and technology. The ovens in the Solar Energy Cook off will be judged by a panel based on originality of food cooked and design of the cooker. The winners of both competitions will get the chance to compete in the Statewide Energy Whiz Olympics in Cocoa Beach on May 2, 2015! If you would like to sign up and receive a packet or get some more information, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
