The executive orders include Executive Order 07-126, titled "Leadership by Example: Immediate Actions to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Florida State Government"; Executive Order 07-127, "Immediate Actions to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions within Florida"; and Executive Order 07-128, "Florida Governor's Action Team on Energy and Climate Change."

According to the governor's office, under this legislation, Florida will pursue renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy, along with alternative energy such as ethanol and hydrogen.
