Special District

The purpose of the Florida Resiliency and Energy District (FRED) is to facilitate the financing of Qualifying Improvements through a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program, in accordance with Section 163.08, Florida Statutes, and provide an efficient process for real property owners within the legal boundaries of the district to access and administer the PACE program. 

 

The FDFC provides all administrative services and their PACE program to FRED, which allows local communities to have a turnkey platform for providing PACE to their constituents. Communities can join FRED through a Resolution. Once FRED has the approval of the local community to join and service agreements in place with the Tax Collector and Property Appraiser, the local community can be eligible for PACE. 

FRED Operates under Florida Statues:  163.01 and 163.08

Date Established: January 10, 2017

Establishing Entities:

  • Town of Lake Clarke Shores

  • City of Fernandina Beach
