Florida Power & Light’s solar output exceeds 1,000 MW
Florida Power & Light’s (FPL) solar power plants now generate more than 1,000 MW of solar energy. FPL, an energy utility, has 14 solar plants in commercial operation and four more that are near completion. Jan. 25 marked the day the combined energy generation from FPL’s universal solar portfolio reached its highest-ever total.
“FPL is in the midst of one of largest solar expansions in the history of the U.S. We generated 10 times more solar energy last year than we did in 2016, and we’re investing billions of dollars to advance solar affordably for our customers. Crossing the 1,000-MW mark is a symbolic milestone of our commitment, and we look forward to achieving many more milestones like this in the future,” said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL.
The company announced that it would expand its long-standing clean energy commitment with a “30-by-30” plan to install 30 million more solar panels across Florida by 2030. The plan will result in approximately 11,000 MW of installed solar capacity by 2030.
