The City of Hollywood, Florida Green Solar & Wind Energy Efficiency Project Website
$1.3 million was awarded to the city through the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant Program as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to install Solar Panels and Wind Turbines at city facilities.
The program will reduce the city’s energy costs and carbon emissions and serve to help educate the public on available renewable energy technologies that can be used in the public and private sectors to help promote a green and sustainable Hollywood.
The City of Hollywood has partnered with Energy Systems Group (ESG), to develop a renewable energy project that will involve installation of solar photovoltaic panels and wind technologies.
