FPL Energy announced through its 3rd Quarter earnings report that it plans to cut back on its 2009 wind energy development plans. FPL Energy had previously planned to add approximately 1,500 megawatts (MW) in 2009, but the revised plan is to build approximately 1,100 MW.

FPL said that cutting back in the wind space is part of its plan to cut capital expenditures from approximately US $7 billion in 2009, to US $5.3 billion.
