The Problem

Like many coastal cities, Coral Gables’ ability to provide emergency services can be impacted when natural disasters occur.

The Idea

The City of Coral Gables will make its critical infrastructure more resilient by integrating smart solar-powered micro-grids that can prioritize power distribution during emergencies, allowing for operations such as public safety services to continue.

What Mayor Raúl Valdés-Fauli is saying:

Being named a Champion City helps validate our commitment to merge cutting-edge technology with high-level service enhancements to make our city—and other cities—safer.
