Sarasota, Florida [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Florida Power & Light (FPL) has opened the largest solar array in the state. The array also the second-largest in the Southeast, uses 1,200 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. The system is capable of producing 250 kilowatts of energy.
Construction of the system was made possible by FPL’s Sunshine Energy program, a voluntary green power program offered as a choice for FPL residential and commercial customers who want to support renewable electric generation. Since Sunshine Energy’s inception in 2004, more than 37,000 FPL residential and business customers have enrolled in the program.
“I am thankful for the leadership of the Sarasota County government and Florida Power and Light in partnering to provide alternative methods of powering our homes and businesses,” said Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
