The Florida Renewable Energy Producers Association (FREPA) is a Florida not-for profit organization, dedicated to advocating on behalf of all current and potential renewable energy producers with an interest in project development in Florida. FREPA's main goal is to advocate for policy and fiscal incentives, a favorable regulatory environment, project funding, and programs that promote research and spur growth in the use of renewable energy sources in Florida. We provide current information about the energy industry, public policy and research relating to renewable energy in Florida and the nation.

Our membership is open to anyone with an interest and desire to have a voice in pursuit of our mission to diversify energy and fuel offerings in Florida. With a robust agricultural community and positive weather conditions, Florida is ideal to lead in renewable energy crop production for biofuels. This is also a great state for the production of solar energy, woody energy and other forms of biomass. Technologies continue to be refined and Florida is on the cutting edge with some of its current programs. We concur with former Commissioner Charles Bronson and current Commissioner Adam Putnam of the Florida Department of Agriculture, when they say Florida could have 25 percent of its energy be from renewable sources by the year 2025.
