Naples Energy Program
Since 2008, the City of Naples has been progressively working on ways to reduce energy use and utility bills. Work completed includes:

A Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory.
An Energy Savings Action Plan for City operations and facilities.
A Status Report for government savings and establishment of a Community Energy Savings Committee.

The City’s Natural Resources Division led by Dr. Mike Bauer, received funding via the State of Florida for an energy outreach program and in May 2011, contracted a team led Twentyfifty, LLC., a Naples-based consulting firm.

The campaign has two major components:

  1. raising awareness of free and low-cost ways residents can save energy and money in their homes and
  2. promoting sustainable business operations through the implementation of a voluntary Green Business certification program

For Residents

A multi-faceted 
energy outreach program for homeowners includes: 

  1. A comprehensive website with information on how to reduce energy and water use together with estimates of the financial savings. ( 
  2. A social media presence through Facebook and Twitter. 
  3. A monthly e-mail newsletter. 
  4. An informational brochure with energy-saving tips. 
  5. Presentations covering basic energy conservation actions, potential utility bill savings and an opportunity to learn about additional projects. 
  6. Traditional marketing through radio, TV and print media to raise awareness of the program. 
  7. Participation in various out-reach events throughout the grant period. 
  8. Establishment of a regular meet-up group to exchange news and ideas on energy reduction methods and sustainability efforts.



For Businesses

As part of the Community Energy Savings Committee in 2009-2010, a voluntary Green Business Program was developed specific to Naples. Twenty-five local businesses will be certified during the grant-funded period and the City congratulates awardees for their efforts in helping Naples become the green jewel of Southwest Florida!
