Jefferson City, Mo.-based Missourians for Cleaner Cheaper Energy has submitted approximately 170,000 signatures for the Clean Energy Initiative ballot to the secretary of state's office.

More than 400 Missouri volunteers statewide circulated petition pages for the initiative, which would require investor-owned utilities to generate or purchase 15% of their electricity from clean energy sources, such as wind and solar power. The signatures were turned in from six U.S. congressional districts.

"We are pleased that so many Missourians have gathered signatures to put this clean energy measure on the ballot," says P.J. Wilson, a spokesperson for the campaign. "Using clean, renewable energy works for everyone in Missouri, and voters will now get the chance to vote on the future of energy in Missouri."
