Preserving the Community’s Rural Way of Life

Solar energy centers make an ideal neighbor for agricultural and rural communities for a variety of reasons:

  • Protecting against urban sprawl: Unlike commercial developments, a solar energy center can easily transition back to agricultural use at the end of its lifecycle.
  • Increasing biodiversity: The perennial ground cover planted throughout solar energy centers reduces potential for erosion, stabilizes soil, and facilitates biodiversity.
  • Providing habitats for native wildlife: FPL’s solar energy centers are environmentally enhanced to provide habitats for native wildlife and to coexist with the flora and fauna across our great state.
