JUNO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE:
NEE) is driving continuous improvement across its businesses by delivering
award-winning customer service, achieving operational excellence, respecting
the environment, investing in its workforce, and making a difference in its
communities, according to the company's 2012 Corporate Responsibility Report,
which it released today.

"At NextEra Energy, our corporate values are simple: we are committed to
excellence, we do the right thing, and we treat people with respect," said Jim
Robo, NextEra Energy president and CEO. "We believe these values also
represent the essence of corporate responsibility, and by living these values
every day we continue to generate important benefits for our customers,
employees, investors, communities and other stakeholders."

Highlights from the report include:

  o Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), NextEra Energy's rate-regulated
    electric utility subsidiary, offers its typical residential customers a
    bill that is the lowest in Florida and 24 percent below the national
    average, along with the best reliability in the state among investor-owned
    utilities.
  o Florida's economy also benefits from FPL's approximately $3 billion per
    year in capital investments and the company's new economic development
    program that provides discounted electric service for new and expanding
    businesses.
  o NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the company's competitive generation
    subsidiary, continues to invest in growing its position as the country's
    largest owner of renewable energy from the wind and the sun. Its wind
    turbines alone are capable of producing enough clean, emissions-free
    energy to power more than 2 million homes. 
  o Benefitting from its ongoing investments in clean and renewable
    generation, NextEra Energy's 2011 emission rates of sulfur dioxide,
    nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxides were lower than the U.S. electric
    sector averages by 90 percent, 80 percent and 51 percent, respectively.
  o In 2011, NextEra Energy paid more than $400 million in property taxes for
    the benefit of communities, awarded $230 million in contracts to small,
    minority- and women-owned businesses, and raised a company record of more
    than $3 million for its annual United Way campaign.
  o The company was the only one in its industry sector and one of just 13
    U.S. employers outside the health care industry to receive the 2012 Best
    Employers for Healthy Lifestyles Award (Platinum category) for "healthy
    weight, healthy lifestyle programs with measurable success and documented
    outcomes."
