Babcock Ranch’s clean energy efforts were taken to the next level when FPL created the largest solar-plus-storage system operating in the U.S. today.

The adjacent 440 acres with 330,000 solar panels can generate up to 74.5 megawatts of power.

The new battery storage system ensures a steady output of power even on partly cloudy days.
