TALLAHASSEE, FL — Environmental leaders from the Florida Clean Energy For All (CEFA) table delivered an open letter today - on Earth Day - to Governor Ron DeSantis encouraging strong action to advance clean energy in the era of climate change.

Given that Florida is the state most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, the need for immediate action is clear. Yet, the state lags behind in capturing cost-effective energy efficiency and, while solar deployment is beginning, there is much room for improvement in growing solar power in the Sunshine State.

Representatives from these groups spoke to specific, urgent actions on climate change and clean energy that the Governor can implement and they delivered a letter which details those actions to the Governor’s office.

Along with the letter, Florida Clean Energy for All released a video of leaders and others around the state making the case for immediate action. The groups also held a press conference to release the video and letter on the 4th-floor rotunda of the Capitol.
