UFIT, IFAS create website to gauge value of Florida’s energy projectsUF News, February 20, 2014
Floridians can learn extensive details about energy projects in the state with the help of a website created by University of Florida Information Technology and the Program for Resource Efficient Communities, known as PREC.
UFIT and PREC partnered last summer to create My Florida Energy Projects, which allows users to examine data from Florida’s energy-saving projects. The website application, complete with maps, graphs, and other data, went live Sept. 30, 2013.
PREC, part of UF/IFAS Extension, promotes resources that allow communities to reduce energy consumption. The site provides data collected from projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The application was created for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to help the public and policy makers determine which projects should be pursued in the future.
