Florida utility plans to install 30 million solar panels by 2030
“Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has announced a groundbreaking “30-by-30” plan to install more than 30 million solar panels by 2030 and make the state of Florida a world leader in the production of solar energy.
FPL has secured solar sites throughout the state, enabling its bold plan to capture economies of scale and promote the construction of efficient and cost-effective solar generation. The end result will be the largest installation of solar panels by a regulated utility in the world and a 67% fleet-wide reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rate by 2030 as compared to the national average…”

Hurricane alley not so wise
That’s good wish we can have support here as well to install solar energy as well in Africa
I like it that is bigg like dang
Locust in Mecca really?
What a waste of space.
What the hell is wrong with you people I’m moving to Florida this is great clean air good for the world! I guess stupid people want to keep dirtying up the world with coal and fracking ! Go live in Oklahoma or Texas and enjoy the earthquakes and high bills.
Should install twice that many
Where is Angora?
I love it
Well, Florida is on its way to being underwater, but if this helps, go for it.
takes just atoms of uranium to power a city, why cant we go nuclear?
Brian Cowan LOL – you quite obviously don’t know anything about FL so why did you feel the necessity to shoot off your mouth?
Florida is the second shitiest state. Let them do what they want even if it’s dumb.
I too thought why invest in infrastructure for places that will be underwater in the believably-near future?
Mike Scott In your very ignorant, uninformed opinion. lol
melvira manson while I agree that solar is good, I want you to know that Florida is prone to very extreme weather. It has tornadoes year round and lots of lightning and hail. There is also the occasional hurricane that cause billions of dollars in damage. Florida also has a subsidence problems from the increased population and the lowering water table from freshwater demands. I think you are very biased against anyone who has a different opinion than yours and it shows. I’d consider it a charecter flaw that will not serve you well in real life interpersonal communication.
Apparently you dislike the states of Texas and Oklahoma for some reason. Let me help you see the error of your feelings because the facts will prove your blind bias wrong. Texas is the number one state in the union for Green Wind Power. Texas produces 22,000 megawatts of wind produced electricity. Oklahoma, while not as high as Texas, produces a third of the state’s power by wind turbine. Florida by comparison has near Zero wind capacity. It’s a dirty state for electric power and it’s urban sprawl is destroying precious wetlands.
I hope this information allows you to possibly expand your knowledge and be less ignorant.
Good day 🙂
Jat Pack5 You obviously don’t live in FL! lol
Killing too much of nature to have solar on ground like that. put on half the roof where u already killed nature n get light vegetation on other half of roofs
A Wolf so tell me that Florida does not have sinkholes, hurricane and year round thunderstorm activity. I’ll wait
how do solar kill nature?
growing plants on roof may be their solution, sonny. are you pissed that they did not consult your whiny, peevish ass before the job was done? hahaha
michael d. morrison a few moments later… CLIMATE CHANGE!!! REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Jat Pack5 That’s not what you said. Now, what state do you live in?
A Wolf Ok, I’m the moderator of this collection, and read every single comment, and I’ve been waiting for you to give any sort of facts, details or even attempt to offer some sort of intelligent or fact-based rebuttal beyond your “you obviously don’t know” fuckery. But you haven’t. All you’re doing is trolling. So here’s your chance to present a case. If you don’t in your next comment, you’ll be blocked.
Wasim Muklashy I’ll start off with the assumption you don’t live in FL. Seems obvious. And neither does Jat Pack5! I’ve lived in SWFL over 20 yrs [and 4 hurricane hits]. No damage to extensive solar panels fields by Irma or Michael in Lee and Charlotte counties. I’ve never seen reported serious, extensive solar panel damage and I follow FL news.
Damed little hail in a subtropical climate. lol
Very few tornadoes in FL, period!!! And when they come, there are F-0 or F-1.
Like I said, Jat Pack5 doesn’t know what he’s talking about! I just stopped by and saw his “uninformed” comment. So, promote ignorance and block me if you wish. I don’t really care one way or the other, but it will say something about you.
A Wolf I’m not here to argue with you. Quite honestly I couldn’t give two shits what your views are. I’m just tasked with making sure there are no trolls in here who’s sole purpose is to instigate, which is how your first 3 posts came in. This time, after asked, you provided some actual information, so I’ll leave it at that. Have fun.
Mike Scott yeah
Wasim Muklashy Thank you! Btw, you are more impressed with you than am I.
