BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Florida Power and Light Company’s Palm Bay Solar Energy Center is now generating power from 284,648 solar panels capable of generating enough solar energy to power 15,000 homes annually.

The solar panels sit low to the ground and operate virtually unmanned.

The new solar energy center also serves FPL’s “SolarTogether” program – the largest community solar program in the United States. The program gives customers the option to meet all or part of their energy needs by subscribing to solar capacity from large-scale solar energy centers, like the one in Palm Bay.

Everyone, no matter where they live or whether they rent or own, can participate in the program.

FPL currently operates 37 solar energy centers across the state, with seven more currently under construction, including the FPL Discovery Solar Energy Center located at Kennedy Space Center in Brevard County.
