See Solar In Action

Looking for a fun activity for your family, and want to learn a little something, too? You can see solar energy in action at some museums, zoos and other education centers throughout Florida. As part of our commitment to partnering with communities across the state, we’re helping these facilities install solar panels and hands-on educational exhibits. Here are the recently completed installations—with more to come!

Central Florida Zoo

Come to the Central Florida Zoo and see how sunshine is made into energy! The Zoo now features 40 solar panels to help capture and generate energy and supply electrical power to the Wayne Densch Discovery Center. In addition to education, the energy that the solar panels produce will be credited to the Zoo, saving money on energy costs.

Kennedy Space Center

NASA pioneered the first use of solar power in space. But, you don’t have to go that far to see how sunshine can produce electricity. As part of a partnership with FPL, visitors to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex just East of Orlando can see a 25-kW solar panel system on the covered walkway by the new Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction. If you go for a visit, be sure to also look for our educational exhibit.

Museum of Discovery and Science

At the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale, you can see solar energy in action at a slot car racetrack – all powered by Florida’s sunshine. A 25-kW solar panel system installed above the main entrance captures the sun’s rays and converts it into electricity. Visitors can see this real-time energy production at the FPL exhibit within the museum.

Check for discounts on admissions.

Imaginarium Science Center

Florida’s West Coast also has solar energy in its backyard. Visitors to the Imaginarium Science Center in Fort Myers can learn about solar energy at the FPL exhibit. We helped the center install a 10-kW solar system as part of the Caloosahatchee Experience, an exhibit with live alligators and aquariums.

Brevard Zoo

There’s a lot to learn about at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, including how sunshine can help generate electricity. Before you walk into the front entrance, look up to see the 10-kW system we installed on the facility’s roof. Also, stop by to see our robust educational display next to the gift shop.
