Florida Power Wins 2002 IREC Award

Florida Power’s Manufactured Housing Photovoltaic Project has been named one of the top four 2002 Innovation Award winners by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC).

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida – July 3, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] Florida Power’s Demand Side Management (DSM) team worked with the Florida Solar Energy Center and Palm Harbor Homes to conduct Renewable Energy research on six manufactured homes. The project’s primary objective was to reduce the costs associated with the installation and to conduct research on rooftop solar photovoltaic systems. “The research we are conducting will allow Florida Power to further evaluate the potential for viable Renewable Energy resources,” said Bob Morehead, vice president of Energy Delivery Services in Florida. Florida Power’s DSM initiative manages electricity demand by partnering with customers to achieve energy savings. The company’s Manufactured Housing Photovoltaic Project attained the first part of its goal by reducing the installation costs up to 50 percent by incorporating key system components during the construction process. All manufactured housing sites that were part of the pilot have been completed and are currently being monitored to evaluate the feasibility of Renewable Energy generation.
