As awareness of the need for alternative energy sources has grown, scores of organizations to support this cause have emerged all around the world. Locally, there are any number of organizations looking at achieve the goal of energy conservation and efficiency. One organization that the Science Center has worked with is FREA – Florida Renewable Energy Association.
The mission of FREA is simple. As stated on its web site, “The Florida Renewable Energy Association is dedicated to expanding the use of clean, renewable energy technologies through public awareness, political advocacy, and individual initiative. “
Acting on the belief that all Floridians have an inherent right to a clean, sustainable environment and a corresponding belief that Floridians can pursue clean, renewable sources of energy without compromising opportunities for sustained economic growth, FREA provides seminars on energy efficiency, solar energy, and alternative fuel vehicles and tries to work with similar organizations to advocate policies that will make Florida a leader in renewable energy development and use.
