The Florida campaign for Student Green Energy Funds (SGEF) at state universities scored a major victory this past semester. At the University of South Florida (USF,) students voted to implement a SGEF on their campus next fall. A SGEF is a small per credit hour fee that is then spent on renewable energy and energy efficiency projects on campus. At USF specifically, students voted to enact the fee at $1.00 per credit hour. This will make the fee the first of its type in Florida, and one of the only truly democratic fee structures in the state.
