Welcome to Miami-Dade Green
Miami-Dade County invites you to become stewards of the environment.
Nestled between the Everglades and the sea, Miami-Dade County is blessed with a wealth of unique natural resources. Beautiful sandy beaches line the coast while Biscayne Bay is a playground for tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. To the west, Everglades National Park supports a wide variety of plant and animal life. These natural resources, coupled with our tropical climate, make Miami-Dade County a great place to live and visit.
Since we live in one of America’s most vulnerable communities, the County’s focus is to achieve aggressive water conservation, energy, climate change, and greenhouse gas reduction goals to sustain ourselves, our community and our natural resources. This effort includes the County’s implementation of GreenPrint – Our Design for a Sustainable Future. GreenPrint lays out a vision and action plan for a greener, more sustainable future in which we turn the pressing challenges of our day into opportunities for economic growth and a better quality of life.
- In most Florida homes, air conditioning accounts for 40% or more of the annual electric bill. Setting the temperature at 78 degrees combines comfort and energy efficiency.
- The water heater is a large user of energy in most homes, and other wasteful water behaviors also waste energy.
- Toaster or microwave ovens use less energy and add less heat to the kitchen compared to a conventional oven.
