August 2004 - Less than six months after the launch of its Sunshine Energy green power program, Florida Power & Light Company announced that nearly 6,000 residential customers are now enrolled, making it the fastest growing green pricing program in the Southeast. FPL partners with Green Mountain Energy Company to market the program to customers.
Under the program, residential customers can purchase renewable energy in increments of 1,000 kWh each month at an extra cost of $9.75. The program is supplied with renewable energy certificates from wind, solar and biomass sources located in Florida and other states. For every 10,000 customers who sign up for the Sunshine Energy program, FPL will add 150 kW of solar capacity in Florida. The utility plans to announce the location of the first solar facility in the coming weeks.
