Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) is working to help fuel job growth and move Florida toward energy independence. To date, FPL operates dozens of solar energy centers across the Sunshine State, each of which quietly generates clean, American-made energy for Floridians.
Features of a solar energy center:
Solar energy centers generate significant economic benefits for local communities by increasing local business and tax revenue. Proximity to renewable energy can also be a deciding factor for job-creating companies that are considering relocation or expansion.
Additionally, FPL strives to be a good neighbor by finding opportunities to support the local community through long-term partnerships and educational opportunities, including grants for district-wide science fairs, investing in STEM education with our energy curriculum, and awarding FIRST® Robotics Scholarships through the NextEra Energy Foundation to help shape Florida’s next generation of engineers. FPL has also installed solar panels with real-time energy monitoring at more than 100 schools and other education centers, like museums and zoos, to help schools and communities better understand and use solar energy.
A solar energy center can help protect against urban sprawl, increase the area’s biodiversity, and provide habitats for native wildlife.
