As a state, Florida uses more energy than it produces. A growing economy, rising population and increasing globalization all put pressure on Florida to import more energy from other states and overseas, as well as produce more of its own energy.

Our Florida chapter works to provide information and advocacy on the various ways Florida is working to diversify its energy portfolio. From expanding residential solar capacity, increased exploration for natural gas, and opportunities to site offshore wind and oil and gas facilities, Florida’s energy future is full of sunshine!

  • Lend a Hand and Help Build a Pipeline

    CEA President David Holt addressed how obstructing responsible infrastructure development and maintenance harms America’s hardworking laborers, families, and small businesses. Hating pipelines – and energy production – seems like the trendiest thing to do, doesn’t it? It’s high school all over again, and if you think pipelines are a must-have, well, you’re just not with […]

  • During Hurricane Season, Pipelines Expansion Is a Must-have

    CEA Florida Executive Director was featured in the Sun Sentinel discussing the importance of pipelines during hurricane season. Florida is reportedly vulnerable to energy disruption in one of two ways: if supply is shut down in the Gulf of Mexico, or if a pipeline fails. Hurricanes — which can interrupt supply and leave the state susceptible […]

  • Additional Pipelines Needed in Near Future to Meet Energy Needs

    CEA Florida’s Executive Director Kevin Doyle recently discussed the necessity of pipelines to meet our energy needs. It was reported, back in 2008, that Florida was vulnerable to energy disruption if supply was shut down in the Gulf of Mexico or if a pipeline failed. And hurricanes – which can interrupt supply and leave the state […]

As part of Consumer Energy Alliance’s (CEA’s) Solar Energy Future campaign, the 400,000-member nationwide advocacy group on August 8 released a new report, “Incentivizing Solar Energy: An In-Depth Analysis of U.S. Solar Incentives.” Conducted on behalf of CEA by Borlick & Associates, a management consulting group, […]

  • CEA Releases Comprehensive Solar Incentive Analysis; Highlights Importance of Pro-Solar, Pro-Grid, Pro-Consumer Policies

    As part of Consumer Energy Alliance’s (CEA) Solar Energy Future campaign, the organization today released a new report, “Incentivizing Solar Energy: An In-Depth Analysis of U.S. Solar Incentives,” that provides a comprehensive quantification of solar incentives available for U.S. energy consumers. The report analyzes the cost for a typical solar facility in 15 states and […]

  • It’s Time to Fight Back Against Anti-Development Threat

    CEA’s Jack Belcher discusses the savings families have seen as a result of American energy development. We’re well aware of the many successes that America’s energy revolution has produced. We’re now the world’s largest oil and natural gas producer. Not only are we importing less oil, but we’re exporting it now, too. In fact, the […]

  • Amendment 1 Would Boost Solar Energy and Benefit All

    CEA Florida’s Kevin Doyle discusses Amendment 1 and how energy consumers benefit from access to solar energy. When Walt Disney World hit the switch on a new 5-megawatt, 22-acre, Mickey Mouse-shaped solar energy farm, it not only powered its various hotels and theme parks. The generation hurtled Florida into its future, push-starting the Sunshine’s State […]
