Transition Sanibel to 100% renewable electricity by 2035
"Solarize Sanibel" is an alliance of community organizations, businesses, and individuals calling on the Sanibel City Council to pass a binding resolution to transition Sanibel to 100% renewable electricity by 2035, and to establish a long-term strategic plan to achieve that goal.
Let's come together and make it happen!

JOINING OUR NEIGHBORS
Sanibel would be joining hundreds of other cities across the country in making this commitment, including many within our own state, such as Sarasota, Gainesville, Tallahassee, Orlando, and St. Petersburg.
It is time for Sanibel to commit to making a shift to a 100% clean energy future as part of our sustainability planning. Doing so is within our reach through currently available technology, and would allow the City of Sanibel and its taxpayers to realize considerable cost savings over time while considerably offsetting our island's carbon footprint.
If you agree that it is time to take action on this pressing issue, please add your voice to the growing community-wide support to transition Sanibel to 100% renewable electricity.

IN THE NEWS
THE FACTS BEHIND RENEWABLE ENERGY
In the past ten years, utility-scale solar installation costs dropped by 74%, while costs for community and rooftop solar decreased by 59%. And production is up dramatically, with more commercial solar electric installations in 2017 than coal, gas, and nuclear combined. Installation costs for wind-powered electricity are also down 75% over the past ten years. In 2018, approximately 50% of new electricity capacity in the U.S. was from wind and solar driven by market forces. In fact, these favorable market forces are occurring despite the fact that the fossil fuel industry receives more than 36 times as much in subsidies than the renewable energy sector.*
Simply put, developers and the public sector are quickly realizing that embracing renewable energy sources is financially and technologically desirable.
