Gulf Power Wins Approval from FPSC for Three Renewable Projects
Apr 29 15
Gulf Power has announced a partnership with the US Navy and US Air Force to build solar energy farms at three different facilities across northwest Florida. The utility has reportedly received approval from the Florida Public Service Commission, or FPSC, for all three renewable projects. The solar energy farms will be constructed at Eglin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach (30 megawatts), Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Outlying Landing Field Holley in Navarre (40 megawatts), and Naval Air Station Pensacola, Outlying Landing Field Saufley in Pensacola (50 megawatts). Gulf Power will serve customers across Northwest Florida with power from these renewable energy-generating facilities. Together, these new solar facilities, which will be developed by HelioSage Energy, could produce enough energy to power approximately 18,000 homes for one year. As an intermittent energy resource, the solar farms will not replace Gulf Power's generation plants, but will have the capability to provide energy that will diversify the power supply and provide a cost-effective alternative during peak energy usage. Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2016 and the facilities are expected to be in service no later than December 2016. The company's first renewable energy project was the 3.2-megawatt Perdido Landfill Gas-to-Energy facility, which has produced more than 100 million kilowatt hours of electricity since starting commercial operation in 2010. Gulf Power also submitted a request in February to the FPSC to approve an agreement that would make the utility a purchaser of wind generation among Florida utilities. If approved, this would bring the company to a total of five renewable energy sources.
Gulf Power Gets Clearance for 120 MW of Florida Solar Projects
Apr 20 15
Gulf Power Co has received regulatory approval to develop three solar photovoltaic (PV) parks in Florida with a combined capacity of 120 MW. The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) said on April 16, it has allowed Gulf Power to purchase power from three large-scale solar farms on military sites in the northwestern part of the state. The three power stations are expected to be up and running in late 2016. They are estimated to boost Gulf Power's renewable energy generation by more than 600%.
