June 2006 - According to a June 15 article in the Palm Beach Post, Florida Power and Light (FPL) plans to make its Sunshine Energy green pricing option available to its commercial customers. Currently, residential customers can purchase renewable energy in 1,000-kWh increments each month at an extra cost of $9.75, or a rate premium of 0.975¢/kWh. The green power is supplied with renewable energy certificates (RECs) sourced from projects located in Florida and other states. In addition, FPL pledges to add 150 kW of solar capacity in Florida for every 10,000 customer signups. At the end of 2005, the FPL program was among the national leaders in both customer participants and green power program sales.
