To date, FPL has built 12 large-scale solar energy centers throughout Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast that, together, feature more than three million solar panels. They produce enough clean, emissions-free energy to power about 180,000 homes per year while preventing emissions equivalent to removing close to 168,000 cars from the road annually. The clean energy generated by these solar energy centers feeds directly into the grid to power Florida homes and businesses in our community and beyond.
FPL also demonstrates clean energy in the local community through the FPL SolarNow program. The solar trees and canopies at Riverview Park in Indian River County; Kiwanis Park in Martin County; Jessica Clinton Park in St. Lucie County; and popular destinations like the Palm Beach International Airport and the Palm Beach Zoo in Palm Beach County not only provide much-needed shade on sunny Florida days, but they also serve as symbols of clean energy in the community.
Manatee Lagoon, an FPL Eco-Discovery Center®, is another fantastic place to see clean energy in action right here in the community. It was designed to help visitors understand Florida’s manatees and their surrounding ecosystem, and it brings clean energy to life with solar trees and canopies.
