Florida Utility Building Nation’s Largest Photovoltaic Solar Facility

desotoFlorida Power & Light Company (FPL) is bringing  commercial-scale solar photovoltaic power to Florida for the very first time. FPL broke ground in late February for the DeSoto Next Generation Solar Energy Center.  When completed at the end of 2009, the plant will be the largest photovoltaic solar facility in the nation.

The Solar Energy Center will use 90,000 photovoltaic panels on 180 acres of land in DeSoto County to convert sunlight directly into electricity.  At 25 megawatts, it will provide enough electricity to power more than 3,000 homes — nearly 20 percent of the county’s population.

A boon for the environment, solar photovoltaic power is carbon-free, uses no water and produces no waste.

The DeSoto Energy Center is one of three new solar facilities FPL is building in Florida. Together they will total 110 megawatts of clean, renewable solar energy capacity, making Florida the No. 2 producer of solar energy in the nation.
