What is the Missouri renewable energy initiative? This was a ballot initiative in the state of Missouri for the November 2008 election, to make the switch to renewable energy sources. Started by the Missourians for Cleaner Cheaper Energy, the Missouri renewable energy initiative involves investing in solar power and other renewable energy sources. The ballot initiative passed by two thirds of the votes, showing that the residents of the state of Missouri are ready to do the right thing for the environment. This initiative amends the law in the state, so that electric utility companies which are owned by investors must either purchase or generate a specific amount of electricity from renewable power sources. The percentage required increases over time, and the consumer rate increases are capped at one percent.
