Deerfield Beach to Become Florida’s Next Smart City

The City of Deerfield Beach, Fla., and Siemens recently announced the official start of a city-wide energy efficiency project to reduce the city’s environmental footprint. Last month, the Commission of Deerfield Beach approved a 17-year contract with Siemens for energy performance services. Valued at more than $9.2 million, the infrastructure improvement project will allow the city to reduce energy consumption in more than 20 of its facilities and increase the use of alternative energy sources. Energy and operational savings are approximated to be $15 million by the end of the 17-year project.
