HelioSage Energy and Gulf Power Company Announces Development of Three Large-Scale Solar Projects Across Northwest Florida Totaling 120 Megawatts

HelioSage Energy and Gulf Power Company announced the development of three large-scale solar projects across Northwest Florida totaling 120 megawatts (MW). Gulf Power and HelioSage have partnered with the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy to develop the solar facilities on three military sites along the Florida Gulf Coast. Once constructed, the projects will serve as the three large photovoltaic (PV) solar facilities in Florida, and among the large solar projects east of the Mississippi. Following approval by the Florida Public Service Commission, HelioSage will develop, finance, and operate the solar projects. The power generated by the facilities will then be sold to Gulf Power under a long-term Energy Purchase Agreement.

The solar facilities will be constructed at Eglin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach (30 MW), Holley Naval Outlying Landing Field in Navarre (40 MW), and Saufley Naval Outlying Landing Field in Pensacola (50 MW).
