  • No, the power generated by the FPL SolarTogether solar plants will be delivered directly to the energy grid, where it is combined with power generated from other energy sources.

What does it mean if my status is “Reserved?”

  • If you receive a “Reserved” confirmation status upon enrolling, your enrollment will become active when the solar energy centers associated with your subscription become operational. Your “Reserved” status guarantees your subscription to the program.
  • You will receive confirmation of your projected billing start date during the enrollment process, or you can access this information on your FPL SolarTogether dashboard on FPL.com.

What if the FPL SolarTogether™ program is sold out and I want to participate?

  • If FPL SolarTogether is fully subscribed, you will be able to join a waitlist and will be notified when more subscriptions become available.
  • Customers who are on the waitlist will be notified based on the order you joined the waitlist and will have 14 days to enroll. You can ask to be removed from the waitlist at any time.
  • Subscription availability can occur when:
    • Capacity becomes available as new solar energy centers become operational
    • An existing participant decreases their subscription; or
    • An existing participant unsubscribes from the FPL SolarTogether program

Why is FPL extending the SolarTogether program?

  • We recently received approval to extend the company's highly popular SolarTogether™ program — more than doubling what's already the largest community solar program in the country spanning FPL's service area — from Miami to Pensacola.
  • The extension of the program will add another 24 solar energy centers, or 1,788 MW of additional SolarTogether subscription capacity, for a total of 3,278 MW or 44 solar energy centers.
  • The 44 solar energy centers will be strategically located across Florida to generate maximum solar output even when it may be cloudy or dark in parts of the state — providing the additional value that comes with generating even more solar energy.

Why does enrollment for the extended program not begin until January 2023?

  • Construction of the first three of the 24 new solar energy centers is expected to be completed early 2023. Additional solar energy centers are expected to be completed through 2025*.

Will the extension change how the original SolarTogether program worked?

  • The extension of the SolarTogether program allows us to increase the subscription credit from 3.4 cents to 3.6 cents in one year and maintains the estimated seven-year payback timeframe.
  • The new credit rate, which took effect at the start of April 2022, ensures everyone will benefit from the same great benefits — whether you subscribed to the SolarTogether program in 2020 or plan to subscribe in 2023.
  • No changes will be made to the monthly subscription charge. It will remain $6.76 per kilowatt subscribed.

Will changes be made to the program’s subscription charges and credits?

  • No changes will be made to the SolarTogether subscription charge. It will remain $6.76 per kW subscribed.
  • Customers who are already enrolled in the program and future participants will all share in the increased benefits that result from a 44-solar energy center program — we will be implementing an improved subscription credit rate schedule, which will become effective for existing participants on April 1, 2022.
  • The year-one credit rate will increase from 3.4 cents per kWh to 3.6 cents per kWh effective for existing customers on April 1, 2022 — and will increase 1.5% annually. This is the same for residential and commercial customers.
    • The credit schedule was submitted to the PSC and can be found on their website at www.floridapsc.com.
    • It is important to understand that in any given month, season or year, the actual amount of credits may be higher or lower.
      • Actual solar generation is influenced by varying weather conditions, such as cloudiness, temperature, the angle of the sun, rainfall, and other factors.
      • Due to this weather variability, it is expected that the amount of actual subscription credits will vary month-to-month, year-to-year, or over multi-year periods.

Will the improved rate schedule apply retroactively for those who are already enrolled?

  • No. Existing program participants will begin to benefit from the revised rate schedule starting on April 1, 2022.

Where will the FPL SolarTogether™ solar power plants be built – must I live in the same community as the solar plants?

  • Under the SolarTogether program, FPL will build, operate, and maintain 44 solar power plants throughout FPL's service territory dedicated to the program, 20 of which are already operational.
  • No, there is no geographic restriction on participation in the SolarTogether program if you live within FPL's service territory.

If I participate in the FPL SolarTogether™ program, how much solar energy can I subscribe to?

  • As a residential participant in the FPL SolarTogether program, you can choose to have up to 100% of your annual energy usage come from solar.*

What does the monthly subscription charge represent?

  • The monthly subscription charge is a fixed dollar amount per kilowatt (kW) subscribed. This charge reflects the costs related to construct, operate and maintain the solar energy centers being built by FPL to support this program.
  • During enrollment, your kWh usage will be converted to kW to determine your maximum subscription level. Subscription units may only be purchased in 1 kW increments.

What does the monthly subscription credit represent?

  • The monthly subscription credit represents your share of the solar energy generated by the solar power plants each month, multiplied by the subscription credit rate.
  • The subscription credit rate will increase annually. As a result, your monthly subscription credits are expected to increase the longer you are in the program.

How are SolarTogether subscription credits generated?

  • Program subscription credits are based on the actual monthly solar generation produced by the SolarTogether energy centers.
  • The subscription credit rate will increase annually. Subsequently, your monthly subscription credits are expected to increase the longer you are in the program, reducing your bill over time.

Why is my subscription credit fluctuating each month?

  • Your SolarTogether subscription credit is based on the actual monthly solar generation from the solar power plants dedicated to this program. The solar power plants are located throughout FPL's service territory to fully harness the power of the sun.
  • It is important to understand that in any given month, season or year, the amount of actual credits may be higher or lower. Actual solar generation is influenced by varying weather conditions, such as cloudiness, temperature, the angle of the sun, rainfall, and other factors.
  • Due to this weather variability, it is expected the amount of actual subscription credits will vary from the estimate month-to-month, year-to-year, or over multi-year periods.

How will the FPL SolarTogether™ monthly subscription charge and credit appear on my FPL bill?

  • The monthly subscription charge and credit will appear as separate line items on your FPL bill.

How will I know if I will get the total subscription amount I’m requesting during enrollment?

  • You can also access the information on your SolarTogether program dashboard on FPL.com.

Why is the subscription charge in my email enrollment confirmation larger than what was displayed during enrollment?

  • During enrollment in the SolarTogether program, your subscription charge is estimated. Your email confirmation shows your actual subscription level and monthly subscription charge.
  • The monthly subscription charge is equal to $6.76 multiplied by your subscription level, kW. Your monthly subscription credit represents your portion of the actual solar power generated.

How are kilowatts converted to kilowatt-hours?

  • A kilowatt (kW) is 1,000 watts, which is a measure of power. A kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a measure of how much energy you’re using.
  • To calculate kWh from kW, multiply the kW number by the time in hours.
    • For example, a 3 kW appliance, if used for 3.5 hours, would be 3 x 3.5, which equals 10.5 kWh of energy.

Does enrolling in the FPL SolarTogether™ program impact my current electric rate structure, time-of-use, demand charges, and/or load control credits?

  • No. Enrolling in the SolarTogether program will not change the number of kWh you consume monthly. It will have no impact on your existing electric rate structure, time-of-use charges and/or demand charges.
  • Your SolarTogether monthly subscription charge and credit will appear as separate line items on your monthly FPL bill.
