Florida Power & Light Co. (FPL) is joining NASA's Kennedy Space Center to explore developing renewable energy projects.
NASA and FPL are committed to expanding the use of renewable energy resources in Florida to reduce greenhouse gases and address the challenge of climate change, according to the company.
‘We now have an exciting opportunity to work with NASA to bring more renewable energy to Florida,’ says Armando Olivera, president of FPL.
Examples of the types of projects contemplated for evaluation under the agreement include solar, biomass, and wind energy projects. The parties plan to initially study the feasibility of installing a solar photovoltaic power generation system capable of producing up to 10 MW of power at a site of approximately 50 acres.
