Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has announced a new “30 by 30” plan that will see the company install more than 30 million solar panels in Florida by 2030.

As part of this plan, FPL plans to install solar parks throughout the state to promote the construction of efficient and profitable photovoltaic production.

This plan “30 x 30” is the largest installation of photovoltaic panels by a utility company regulated around the world. It will also produce a 67% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, compared to the national average.

When this plan is complete, FPL expects to be the largest owner and operator of solar power utilities in the United States.

FPL is not your traditional electrical business. We are an energy-providing technology company and have long believed in the need for smart, forward-looking investments in infrastructure in order to produce tangible, long-term benefits – cleaner air, higher electricity rates. low and reliable service – for our customers, our customers and our state. We are now taking our commitment to clean energy to the next level. In short, this bold and innovative plan is the best for our customers and our rapidly growing state, and we look forward to working with national and local authorities and our regulators to make this vision a reality.

Eric Silagy, President and CEO of FPL.

I support programs that will provide our citizens with better access to clean, affordable energy that will help propel the state into a healthier future. We live in the Sunshine State and solar energy is a natural resource that must be valued. The FPL initiative is important. As Florida’s energy needs continue to grow faster, it is important to diversify our energy resources. This is vital for the economic well-being of our state and the quality of life of the inhabitants.

FPL has already started to combine battery storage technology in its solar power plants, and the company’s photovoltaic projects are expected to have large battery storage capacity by 2030.
