Energy on the Ballot

Here's a brief summary of state ballot initiatives on renewable energy in California, Colorado and Missouri. California's two propositions are especially interesting, and I hope they aren't overshadowed by all the angry noise over the gay marriage-banning Proposition 8. Proposition 7 would dramatically increase the state's Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) to 50% by 2025. Proposition 10 amounts to a referendum on the Pickens Plan by requiring the state to subsidize natural gas and alternative fuel vehicles.

The New York Times also has a blog entry on selected congressional races with energy policy implications, including Michael Skelley, an executive from Horizon Wind Energy running in Texas.

Please vote. Better still, vote for a green energy future.
