Tiny Green Home exhibit sponsorship


City of Orlando, Orlando Science Center, and Orlando Utilities Commission

Tiny Green Home exhibit sponsorship

The City of Orlando’s Green Works initiative works to transform Orlando into one of the most environmentally-friendly, socially inclusive, and economically vibrant cities in America. Green Works Orlando and OUC offer programs, rebates, freebies, and other resources to help residents contribute towards these goals. Many have yet to learn about these programs and engage in sustainable practices at home. The Tiny Green Home exhibit, to be stationed outdoors at the Orlando Science Center (OSC), will provide an engaging experience to support residents on their journey towards sustainable home living. The exhibit will be mobile and deployable to community events. 

The FY20 Green Works budget included funding ($50,000) to support the development of the Tiny Green Home mobile sustainability education center.  Facilities Division will also provide $15,000 for site preparation, namely the installation of a concrete pad and reinforced sidewalks.  Further financial support was provided externally through Orlando’s participation in the American Cities Climate Challenge for design assistance ($15,000).

The City will partner with OUC-The Reliable and Sustainable One, who is also sponsoring the Exhibit ($50,000), as well as two-years of operating and maintenance expenses ($49,585). 

The Tiny Green Home exhibit is planned to be owned, operated, staffed, and maintained by OSC.  As sponsors, the City and OUC will have the opportunity to deploy and host the mobile exhibit at events throughout the year.  The exhibit is funded to operate for a minimum of two years with the potential for extended use.

The Loch Haven Alliance board and Families, Parks and Recreation board have approved the project (June and July, 2020 respectively).  The exhibit is anticipated to launch in October, 2020.

The total project cost to the City shall not exceed the budgeted amount of $65,000.
