Ethanol comes to Tallahassee

Governor Jeb Bush and Florida Department of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) secretary Colleen M. Castille joined executives from General Motors and Inland Food Stores to open the first public E85 ethanol pump in Florida. Located in Tallahassee, the pump is the first of 17 to be installed by Inland Food Stores in Florida in the next eight months.

General Motors will promote the availability of ethanol fuel with dealers and the thousands of consumers with FlexFuel vehicles in the Tallahassee region.

The demand for motor vehicle transportation fuel is expected to grow from 28 million gallons to more than 32 million gallons per day with Florida’s dependence on others for supplies of oil and gasoline.

The 2006 Florida Energy Act takes the first comprehensive step toward a diverse, reliable and secure energy future by expediting electric generation capacity and providing rebates, grants and tax incentives to drive the development of alternative fuel technologies. The four year, $100 million plan aims to reduce Florida’s dependence on imported oil, spur economic growth and increase investment in cleaner, alternative energy sources such as solar, hydrogen and biofuels.
