FPL Kicks Off Summer With a Company Record-breaking Number of Solar Energy Centers Simultaneously Under Construction

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has a company record 20 solar energy centers under simultaneous construction throughout the Sunshine State – surpassing the previous record of 16 last year.

Customer benefit: Solar energy is the most cost-effective source of power generation FPL can invest in today. Already with 65 solar energy centers in operation, these new solar energy centers will add more low-cost, reliable solar energy to FPL’s electric grid. Solar energy requires no fuel to operate, which can help stabilize customer bills by reducing fuel costs. Several of these new sites will support the FPL SolarTogether program – the nation’s largest community solar program that provides voluntary subscribers the ability to lower their electric bills with credits that increase over time based on the solar power generated at FPL SolarTogether sites.

The following 20 solar sites are currently under construction:

  • FPL Nature Trail Solar Energy Center – Baker County
  • FPL Ibis Solar Energy Center – Brevard County
  • FPL Fourmile Creek Solar Energy Center – Calhoun County
  • FPL Terrill Creek Solar Energy Center – Clay County
  • FPL Hawthorne Creek Solar Energy Center – DeSoto County
  • FPL Prairie Creek Solar Energy Center – DeSoto County
  • FPL Sparkleberry Solar Energy Center – Escambia County
  • FPL Beautyberry Solar Energy Center – Hendry County
  • FPL Caloosahatchee Solar Energy Center – Hendry County
  • FPL Turnpike Solar Energy Center – Indian River County
  • FPL Sambucus Solar Energy Center – Manatee County
  • FPL Three Creeks Solar Energy Center – Manatee County
  • FPL White Trail Solar Energy Center – Martin County
  • FPL Canoe Solar Energy Center – Okaloosa County
  • FPL Silver Palm Solar Energy Center – Palm Beach County
  • FPL Big Juniper Creek – Santa Rosa County
  • FPL Pineapple Solar Energy Center – St. Lucie County
  • FPL Orchard Solar Energy Center – St. Lucie/Indian River Counties
  • FPL Pecan Tree Solar Energy Center – Walton County
  • FPL Wild Quail Solar Energy Center – Walton County

Community benefits: 20 FPL solar energy centers under construction are expected to create up to 4,000 jobs total at peak construction. In addition to workers bringing a boost to these local economies by using their goods and services, each individual solar energy center will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to the respective local government tax base that can be used toward essential services, infrastructure and schools.

A word from FPL Vice President of Universal Solar Brandon Stankiewicz: “We’re excited to have another record-breaking year of solar energy center construction because we’ve seen the benefits these sites provide to our customers and the communities where these sites operate. More solar energy on our electric grid means lower fuel costs while we maintain the same nationally regarded reliability our customers expect. New FPL SolarTogether sites entering service will also help subscribers to our community solar program reduce their electric bills. We will continue to invest in new solar technology that harnesses Florida’s abundant sunshine, on behalf of our customers.”
