Solar energy industry rallies behind offshore drilling

October 1, 2009

OilRigThe St. Petersburg Times reports that, “backers of a drive to open up Florida’s near-shore waters to offshore drilling picked up a new ally today: the Florida Solar Energy Industries Association.”

“The reason for these strange bedfellows: Money. The revenue that the state could reap from allowing drilling for oil five miles off Florida’s gulf beaches could act as a bridge to help the state promote alternative energy for the future, the association said in a press release.”
