CEA Florida

As a state, Florida uses more energy than it produces. A growing economy, rising population and increasing globalization all put pressure on Florida to import more energy from other states and overseas, as well as produce more of its own energy.

Our Florida chapter works to provide information and advocacy on the various ways Florida is working to diversify its energy portfolio. From expanding residential solar capacity, increased exploration for natural gas, and opportunities to site offshore wind and oil and gas facilities, Florida’s energy future is full of sunshine!
