The FREE Center
Educating the public on renewable energy


The Free (Fenner Renewable Energy Education) Center is a grass-roots organization formed to educate the public on the benefits of renewable energy and other sustainable practices. We are located on-site at the Fenner Wind Farm in the heart of Central New York. Since late 2001, we have lived and/or worked amongst the 20 turbines that make up this 30 MW wind project. We organized to share our unique experience and to encourage others to embrace a clean energy future. To learn more, see related links.
