Four reasons why Florida is energizing the cleantech industry

1Industry Leaders

Access robust supply chains sustained by Florida’s network of established industry leaders.

From Motorola to Siemens to Saft, Florida is home to many of the leading names in the cleantech industry. Whether your focus is turbines or water remediation or risk assessment, you’ll find an established industry presence across the cleantech spectrum.

2Competitive Costs

You’ll save more green in our pro-business climate.

Florida companies benefit from no personal income tax, a 5.5 percent corporate tax rate and a streamlined regulatory environment that encourages business growth. The result? More money for competitive wages, R&D and reinvestment.

3Natural Resources

Fuel your sustainability goals with our abundant natural resources.

It’s no surprise that the Florida is a natural fit for solar companies, but we have more to offer than just our famous sunshine. Coupled with our proximity to the Gulf Stream and 1,350 miles of coastline, you’ll find plentiful resources for the testing, manufacture and deployment of any cleantech application.


Florida’s supercharged infrastructure will help you run a more efficient operation.

With 15 deepwater seaports, 19 commercial service airports and thousands of miles of road and rail, Florida has the transportation networks to deliver your products and ideas to market with speed and efficiency (and for less money, too).


Florida offers a broad range of industry expertise to power your business.
