Economy Of Solar, After Matthew & What About The Turtles? — Episode 7
Welcome to Redux, a weekly newsmagazine from WJCT and the podcast for the First Coast.
This week, we take a look at solar energy. More specifically, we look at Amendment 1, which is on the Nov. 8 ballot. At first glance, the summary of the amendment sounds pretty good. But upon closer inspection, the measure might be less about renewable energy and more about money.
We also examine the integrity of the First Coast's sewage and power systems after Hurricane Matthew, and we will provide an update on how well our area's sea turtles fared during the storm.
Also, learn more about WJCT's After Hours programming, including the expansion of Relax Radio. The podcast is hosted by Vince Kong.
