NPowerNaples.com, the city of Naples, Twentyfifty LLC and supporters have launched the free NPower Naples energy, resource and cost-saving outreach campaign. Local residents and businesses will be able to identify ways to save money while reducing energy use and lessening waste.
Residents can sign up for a newsletter; stay connected through social media; participate in free presentations on cost-effective ways to save money and make an immediate difference; and share experiences through the Community Corner on the website, which showcases local energy savings success stories. Businesses can take part in the free Green Business Certification Program.
According to Naples Mayor Bill Barnett, “This is one of the most worthwhile programs that I’ve seen in the last few years. I thoroughly endorse it and would hope that all of the citizens in the greater Naples area take it to heart and benefit from it.”
For the program, the city of Naples submitted and won an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant, part of the federal government’s 2009 economic stimulus program. The campaign was designed and will be implemented and administered by local sustainability firm Twentyfifty, in cooperation with the city’s Natural Resources Department.
