Renewable Energy

The rise of renewable power over the past decade has been largely driven by cities. In these densely-populated areas, it is helping to clean the air and reduce pollutant emissions; strengthen electric grids; offer consumers security against volatile energy costs; and, improve the environment and resident quality of life. Several cities have set strong goals for renewable energy adoption, implementing programs and policies that promote the rapid expansion of alternative forms of energy, expanding access to all residents, installing specialized systems on government buildings, and urging state and federal officials and investor-owned utilities to facilitate the growth of renewable types energy.

The City of Miami Beach is currently implementing renewable options such as solar for the community as well as reviewing its land use regulations in order to provide incentives within the energy market.
