Florida Power & Light Company has opened four new PV projects in Florida with a combined generation capacity of 298MW while also closing down one of the state’s largest coal-fired plants, the St. Johns River Power Park.
On January 1, FPL’s four new plants – located in Alachua and Putnam counties, Putnam County, Indian River County and DeSoto County – started providing energy for FPL customers.
Each of these four projects has a generation capacity of 74.5MW, while FPL plans to complete another four PV projects with a generation capacity of 298MW by 1 March 2018.
FPL's new solar plants are designed to effectively pay for themselves over their operational lifetimes. The company’s eight solar plants entering service in 2018 are projected to generate more than US$100 million in savings for FPL customers over and above the cost of construction.
Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL, said: "The truth is progress like this doesn't happen by accident. It's because of our culture of responsible innovation and an unwavering commitment to customers that we're able to deliver cleaner, more reliable energy while keeping electric bills among the lowest in the country.”
The present study analyses the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of PV utility-scale power plants in the first quarter of 2018. It compares different Jinko modules technologies and shows their future developments till 2020 based on technology and market scenarios.
