Florida Power & Light Company Key Developments
Florida Power & Light Company and Florida International University Partner to Build Innovative Solar Research Facility
Jun 4 15
Florida Power & Light Company and Florida International University announced a new partnership to build a commercial-scale distributed solar power facility that will both generate electricity for FPL's 4.8 million customers and serve as an innovative research operation. The project involves the installation of more than 5,700 solar panels on 23 canopy-like structures that will be built this summer in the parking lot of the university's Engineering Center, just north of FIU's Modesto A. Maidique Campus. Using data from the 1.6-megawatt solar array, faculty and students from FIU's College of Engineering and Computing will study the effects of distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) generation on the electric grid in real-life South Florida conditions. The project will benefit both partners in different ways. When the sun is shining, the approximately 342,000-square-foot solar array will provide electricity for FPL customers via the electric grid. Over the course of a year, the installation is expected to produce the equivalent of the amount of energy used by approximately 34,000 laptop computers. The canopy structures will also create about 600 shaded parking spaces.
