It’s full speed ahead for solar energy at Daytona International Speedway. More than 7,000 solar panels at the FPL Solar Circuit are capable of generating 2.1 megawatts of solar power in an hour for the race track and FPL customers. This ranks the speedway as one of the largest professional sports facilities for solar energy. The solar energy produced prevents the emissions of about 2,200 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year – equivalent to driving an average car 2 million laps around the iconic venue.

FPL Solar Circuit

The FPL Solar Circuit is comprised of three solar arrays. The panels form canopy-like structures that provide shade for visitors to Daytona International Speedway while also generating emissions-free clean energy.

Advancing clean energy, together

Daytona Rising was a complete reimaging of the guest experience at the Daytona International Speedway. See how FPL partnered with the team at the legendary speedway to advance clean solar energy and provide a one-of-a-kind fan experience.

Continuing to research solar power

The FPL Solar Circuit is also a live laboratory for solar energy research. High-tech data gathering equipment is being used to obtain valuable insights on renewable energy as part of a multiyear research study. The data helps improve the integration of solar energy and smart grid technologies.
