Clean Energy in the Sunshine State
Clean energy has hit its stride, with solar prices falling 80% in recent years, and the solar industry now employing over 200,000 people — nearly twice as many people as the coal mining industry.
Sierra Club has designated the state of Florida as a high priority in the campaign to move to 100% clean renewable power. As of January 2023, some 14 Florida cities have made commitments to move to 100% clean energy. They include Tallahassee, Gainesville, Orlando, Tampa, Cocoa, Satellite Beach, Dunedin, Largo, Safety Harbor, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, South Miami and Pinellas County.
Your city can be next! With the right tools and informational materials on hand, more of Florida’s cities and communities can move toward a clean energy future. Would you like to help your city make the transition?
Our Clean Energy Toolkit will provide guidance and resources to show how cities can adopt, implement and advance to:
- Decarbonize residential and commercial buildings
- Convert fossil fuel electricity to clean energy such as solar or wind
- Move transportation including fleets and public transit off fossil fuels
Anyone interested in helping cities transition to clean energy or working with your own mayor or city council to join the campaign is encouraged to contact their local Sierra Club group.
