Energy

Twenty-four seven access to reliable energy in Miami-Dade is critical to power buildings, equipment and vehicles that we depend upon every day. In fact, electricity and transportation together account for roughly 90 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Miami-Dade County. Sustaining our ability to use energy the way we do, absent a deliberate effort to increase efficiency and use alternative sources, is growing ever more challenging due to the costs to our economy and natural environment. These costs have long-term ramifications on the quality of life we want to maintain and pass along to future generations.

In 2009, the County was awarded $12.5 million in federal grant dollars through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program (EECBG). This award allowed the County to implement 12 projects including energy management and construction projects, pilot programs, grants, and rebate programs; which assist in the creation of local green jobs.  In addition, the County's Energy Efficiency Campaign includes programs that engage residents to practice, and support, a reduction in energy use and sustainable living.

The County has also developed the Miami-Dade County Electricity Master Plan , which provides a systemic approach to efficient energy use within Miami-Dade County government operations.

Miami-Dade County Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Finance Program

Per County Commission direction, recommendations related to implementation of a voluntary Property Assessment Clean Energy (PACE) Program, pursuant to Miami-Dade County Code, were outlined in a report.
