Florida Power & Light Co. announced it has completed three new solar developments, each with a capacity of 74.5 MW.

The commissioned developments include the Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center in Charlotte County, the Citrus Solar Energy Center in DeSoto County and the Manatee Solar Energy Center in Manatee County.

“By investing strategically in affordable clean energy, we continue to improve the efficiency of our system, reduce fuel consumption, lower emissions and help keep costs down for our customers over the long term," said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL.

Additionally, FPL plans to build four more 74.5 MW solar stations across the state this year, including sites in Alachua, Putnam and DeSoto counties. The utility currently operates more than 335 MW of solar capacity.

FPL has already surpassed the carbon emissions goal set by the Clean Power Plan for Florida to meet by 2030.
