The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved applications by Duke Energy Florida for three more PV projects within the state.
The PSC found that these three DEF PV installations, the Trenton Project, the Lake Placid Project, and the DeBary Project, are cost effective and meet the provisions of its 2017 Settlement Agreement.
The Trenton Solar Power Plant, a 74.9MW site in Gilchrist County, and the Lake Placid Solar Power Plant, a 45MW facility in Highlands County, are expected to be operational by December 2019. The DeBary Generating Station, a 74.5MW project in Volusia County, is expected to be online by the first quarter of 2020.
PSC commissioner Art Graham said: “Duke Energy’s solar projects will help the utility provide clean, cost-effective energy now and in the future to benefit Florida customers. With utility expansion of renewable generation, Florida consumers continue to benefit from emissions-free energy.”
As stated in DEF’s agreement, Duke Energy is authorized to request PSC approval for cost recovery of up to 700MW of solar generation during the agreement term, and specifically up to 350MW in 2019.
