Tennessee Endorses 25x'25

Tennessee SealThe Tennessee General Assembly last week became the 14th state legislative body to endorse the goal of a 25x'25 energy future.

"25x'25" is a rallying cry for renewable energy and a goal for America – to get 25 percent of our energy from renewable resources like wind, solar, and biofuels by the year 2025.

Prime sponsor, State Sen. Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro, and House Agriculture Committee Chairman Stratton Bone, were joined by 32 senators and 96 representatives in overwhelmingly adopting Senate Joint Resolution 728.

The resolution promotes:
"the development of a broad spectrum of renewable energy sources, including wind power, biodiesel, biomass, methane digesters, ethanol, and solar" for the direct economic benefit to agricultural landowners and rural communities.
The measure also recognizes the state's and region's "tremendous renewable energy resources" and that this resource base will "allow America's farmers and ranchers to play a major role in ensuring a fully sustainable U.S. energy system."
