FPL brings four solar projects totaling 300 MW online
Florida Power & Light Company has started operations at its four newest solar projects that began construction last summer:
- FPL Interstate Solar Energy Center, St. Lucie County
- FPL Miami-Dade Solar Energy Center, Miami-Dade County
- FPL Pioneer Trail Solar Energy Center, Volusia County
- FPL Sunshine Gateway Solar Energy Center, Columbia County
Each project is capable of generating 74.5 MW of power, for combined addition of nearly 300 MW of new solar capacity. FPL now operates a total of 18 solar power projects and hundreds of other smaller solar installations, totaling approximately 1,250 MW of solar in Florida.
“These solar plants are the latest tangible evidence of our unparalleled commitment to investing in clean energy technologies for Florida affordably – a strategy that has already dramatically reduced emissions and produced billions of dollars in savings for Floridians,” said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL.
