Emissions from energy generation and management have an impact on our environment. By becoming more energy efficient and investing in renewable energy, the City can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, enhance our resiliency, and save on energy costs.
The City is investing in clean, renewable resources for City equipment and facilities. You can view the performance of the City's first solar power system located at the Environmental Education Center.
The City is becoming more energy efficient in the design, construction, and operation of City facilities. Recent initiatives include:
Oldsmar's Historic Oldsmar Bank and Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant were both designed and built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. Both facilities were awarded LEED Silver Certification by the United States Green Building Council.
Upgrading interior and exterior lighting systems to LEDs (light-emitting diode) at City Hall and Oldsmar Fire Rescue Station.
