“Broward County is making major strides towards a clean energy future, with multiple renewable energy projects and initiatives being undertaken organizationally and across county sites. This includes a number of large-scale solar projects both completed and on-going across at sites that include Port Everglades, various Broward parks and libraries, a county courthouse, warehouse, animal care, transit facilities, and more! … With 14 projects completed to date, Broward County has achieved an installed solar capacity of 3.1 Megawatts (MW).” — Via Broward County, Florida website

As the solar market now approaches the point where installations are cost effective and easily accessible, in addition to providing the immeasurable benefits of contributing to a reduction in the acceleration of sea level rise, providing the technical resources and showcasing opportunities for investments in solar across the community will continue to be our top priority.
