Florida Utility Scale Solar Projects
As a natural extension of our renewable energy project portfolio, Prosser has enjoyed a significant role in the development of over 460 megawatts (MW) of power generated by utility scale solar energy. Although Florida does not have a renewable portfolio standard, Florida utility providers have recognized the importance of diversifying their power portfolio to include solar power.
For the solar projects listed below, Prosser was the engineer of record providing comprehensive consulting services including site selection, due diligence, hydrologic modeling, engineering design, preparation of construction drawings, environmental and local permitting and providing construction administration.
Florida Power & Light (FPL) will soon be generating more power from the sun than coal and oil combined. FPL’s 30-by 30 Plan will result in the largest installation of solar panels by a regulated utility in the world. Today, FPL generates more than 1,200 megawatts of solar generation
Tampa Electric (TECO) is significantly expanding the use of solar power. By 2021, TECO photovoltaic solar projects are expected to provide a total of 600 MW, which is enough electricity to power more than 100,000 homes, with nearly 7 percent of TECO's energy generation coming from the sun.
Through the creation of five new local solar farms, JEA is embarking on a major expansion that will soon provide up to 300 MW of solar power.
