3/6/2007 Alternative Energy Advisory Committee

Larry Bradford and Daryl Bergquist have been bringing the perspectives of solar PV and solar thermal to the Renewable Power working group of the Alternative Energy Advisory Committee for Governor Bob Riley and Commissioner Ron Sparks.  The committee met as a whole Monday morning and we approved the recommendations which are attached and pasted below.  The first part is from the Biofuels working group, the second part from the Renewable Power working group.  These recommendations will be reviewed by Governor Riley and Commissioner Sparks, and from there, actions may be taken and bills written for introduction by legislators.  Our suggestions have been incorporated into these recommendations. We feel this is a good start.  Some of these ideas may be mentioned by the governor in his state of the state address this evening.
