Pennsylvania promoting Biodiesel
The state just signed into law a comprehensive alternative energy bill that focused on requiring a 10% of the electricity in the state to come from renewables. They also passed a bill to encourage fleet use of alternative fuel vehicles, primarilly biodiesel. Good facts in all the releases and the bill. I sure wish Washington would pass a similar bill.
Governor Rendell also signed Senate Bill 255, the Alternative Fuels Incentive Act, which establishes a fund to help people and organizations buy alternative-fuel vehicles and convert existing vehicles to allow them to use alternative fuels. A one-time transfer of funds this fiscal year will support research and installation of alternative energy systems that produce power. The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) hailed the bill. See the governor's press release, the full text of Senate Bill 255, and the NBB press release (PDF 27 KB).
