Florida Power & Light Co. announced plans Jan. 16 to install more than 30 million solar panels by 2030 in Florida. The utility has secured solar sites throughout the state to capture economies of scale and promote the construction of what it expects to be the largest installation of solar panels by a regulated utility in the world. FPL and its sister company, NextEra Energy Resources, now are the world’s largest producers of renewable energy from wind and solar energy. FPL has already begun pairing battery storage technology at its solar power plants. “A significant amount of battery storage” will be deployed throughout Florida by 2030 as well, company officials say. The total generation capacity of the program has not been announced.
