April 2014 - Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) plans to offer its customers more options to support solar power. The company is proposing a voluntary, community-based, solar partnership pilot for consideration before the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). If the proposal is approved, FPL will install new solar-powered generating facilities in Florida communities, funded by voluntary contributions from FPL customers who choose to participate in the pilot program for $9 per month. FPL expects the construction of a total of 25 commercial-scale solar arrays representing an estimated capacity of 2.4 megawatts.
Xcel Energy filed a proposal with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission for a Solar*Connect program that make power from large-scale PV solar facilities available to its Colorado customers. If approved, the electric utility would seek to buy 50 megawatts (MW) from a new, large-scale solar facility to which its customers could subscribe to meet all of their energy needs.
