Florida Power & Light (FPL) is set to build 8 new solar power plants. Executives held a commissioning ceremony last month, introducing three new solar energy facilities — one of which in Manatee County.
The plan will add 8 new solar plants within the next 18 months. The facility is two mile long and generates 74.5 megawatts of power. The goal is to drive down costs and produce more clean and renewable energy from the power of the sunlight.
FPL doesn’t plan to stop there. They also plan to build eight additional facilities across the state over the next 18 months.
