As part of our commitment to deliver reliable, affordable, clean energy to our customers, we’re investing in one of the largest solar energy expansions ever in the U.S.

We’re adding millions of new solar panels in the years ahead across Florida, including four new solar energy centers coming in 2019:

 

Supporting Local Jobs

At the height of construction, each of the sites is expected to employ about 200 people, for a total of approximately 800 jobs for our 2019 solar power plants. Behind the scenes, many more workers are continuing to advance affordable clean energy throughout Florida.

We are also proud to partner with Veterans Florida, Indian River State College, and other organizations to connect U.S. military veterans with careers in solar energy.

 

"Through this effort, veterans will have the opportunity to play an exciting role in the development of some of the largest solar energy centers ever constructed in the eastern United States."

 - Matt Valle, FPL's vice president of development and a former U.S. Navy nuclear submarine officer

 

 

Supporting the Environment

We’re helping keep Florida beautiful by providing clean, renewable energy and partnering with Audubon Florida to plant native grasses and wildflowers on the grounds of our solar power plants. These landscapes will attract butterflies, honeybees and other critical pollinators to the site.

By creating a safe haven for these creatures, we’re helping protect species that play an important role in sustaining our ecosystem.
