"a part of sunshine state renewable energy series"
Last year, we held a  legislative session wrap-up at the Sarasota Ritz Carlton. In attendance was Representative Doug Holder, Senator Nancy Detert, Rep. Keith Fitzgerald, FREPA's good friend  Susan Glickman and other key renewable energy advocates and supporters. We then held similar meetings throughout the state through September of 2009.
This meeting allowed us to decompress from the legislative session and begin thinking of strategies moving forward and opportunities ahead.  While the 2010 legislative session left much to be desired for renewable energy, we believe that it also placed a clear path in front of us.The will of leading Florida  policymakers with regard to this industry is now better known.
 "If you care about the future of renewable energy policy in Florida, you should attend"
