FPL Solar Energy Centers

Today, FPL is the largest generator of solar energy in Florida with 28 major solar power plants and numerous other solar installations, totaling more than 2,000 megawatts of solar generation with more than eight million solar panels installed.

Our ten newest solar plants entered service in 2020 and are projected to generate millions in total system savings for customers during their operating lifetime.

Solar energy centers are virtually silent, operate autonomously and without water. The panels sit low to the ground, and the layout of each site is unique to lessen impacts to wetlands and surrounding areas.

Below, learn more about some of our solar power plants generating zero-emissions solar energy in Florida.
