FPL celebrates new solar plants, commits to building more

At a celebration for its latest solar generating plants on Monday, Florida Power & Light announced its commitment to invest even more in harnessing the sun to create clean, renewable energy.

On Dec. 31, the state’s largest electric utility started generating power at its Manatee Solar Energy Center next to its four-decade-old fossil fuels-generating plant in Parrish, Citrus Solar Energy Center in DeSoto County and Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center in Charlotte County.

Together, the three plants generate 225 of FPL’s total 335 megawatts of solar power currently available on its grid to serve its 4.9 million customer accounts. That total solar generation can keep the lights on and refrigerators humming in 60,000 homes.
