The agreement follows negotiations with Vote Solar, the CLEO Institute, and Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, as more than 20,000 Duke Energy Florida customers are reported to behind on their electric bills.
The company has also completed its first utility-scale installation, as well as invested millions into community solar projects.
Both set to clock in at 75 MW, the projects are a part of the utility’s bigger goal of quadrupling the amount of in-service solar on its system over the next four years.
The utility touted its massive Manatee Energy Storage Center and recommitted to a $65 million green hydrogen pilot project that could impact the future of zero-emission power generation.
As the FPL subsidiary continues its parent’s solar push, 150 MW of solar and 409 MW of storage are set to come to the Sunshine State.
More than 1.3 GW will be built or owned by the utility across Florida and the Carolinas in the coming years, driven by the company’s Competitive Procurement for Renewable Energy program.
The utility plans to power the equivalent of 200,000 homes with solar energy by 2023, and retire a coal plant 18 years ahead of schedule.
