TALLAHASSEEConsumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading energy and environmental advocate for families and businesses, released the following statement today upon the signing of Florida HB 1645 regarding energy resources.

Kevin Doyle, CEA’s Florida Executive Director said, “On behalf of CEA and all of our nearly 400-member companies, thank you to Governor DeSantis and to lead sponsors, Representative Bobby Payne and Senator Jay Collins, for moving this important legislation forward into law.”

“Reliable and affordable energy is vital for Florida’s families and businesses and crucial for our health, safety, and welfare. Diversification of Florida’s fuel supply is a necessary measure in advancing the reliability and sustainability of energy for Floridians.”

“Through comprehensive reforms, HB 1645 promotes policies that ensure Florida’s energy future is secure. This legislation promotes the development of natural gas and renewable energy resources and prioritizes energy production and infrastructure improvements.”

HB 1645 allows our utility companies to build redundancy into their operations, offers customers more energy choices and provides Floridians with greater reliability during extreme weather and peak demand events. Florida’s energy rates are much lower than the national standard due to our diverse portfolio, and HB 1645 aims to promote and maintain the benefits Florida’s energy innovation has provided thus far.

Doyle continued, “We appreciate your support of HB 1645 and we thanks Representative Bobby Payne and Senator Jay Collins for sponsoring this legislation during the legislative session. With your signature of this important piece of legislation, our residents in Florida can continue to have access to reliable, affordable, and abundant energy sources.”
