A Leon County Commissioner is urging the public to step up and help the community become more eco-friendly.

Akin Akinyemi spoke to a group at the Renewal Energy Expo that was held in Tallahassee Wednesday morning.

The conference highlighted current and future renewable energy projects, and recommendations to accelerate the industry.

Akinyemi says public citizens can help by reducing their carbon footprints.

Leon County Commissioner Akin Akinyemi says, "What I hope for the most part is to just appeal to people, to their conscience, to do things on their own without any kind of a mandate from the government."

Organizers of the conference say solar technologies have the largest renewable energy potential in Florida.
