Florida Power & Light announced that it is expanding its Sunshine Energy green power program to its nonresidential customers. Starting in April 2007, commercial customers will be able to participate by purchasing 1000 kWh of renewable energy each month for their electricity needs at a monthly rate premium of $9.75, the same price as for residential customers. The program is supplied with renewable energy certificates (RECs) from wind and biomass sources. In addition, FPL has committed to install 150 kW of solar for every 10,000 customers who enroll. Since the program was launched in 2004, about 26,000 residential customers have enrolled. FPL also received approval from the Florida Public Service Commission to convert Sunshine Energy from a pilot to a permanent program.
