Together, these sites supply 150 MW of clean renewable energy to the grid for the utility’s Florida customers. At peak output, each site will generate enough carbon-free electricity to power the equivalent of approximately 23,000 homes.
Duke Energy Florida’s solar portfolio will see a combined investment of more than $2 billion, with 25 grid-tied solar plants delivering approximately 1,500 MW of energy from approximately 5 million solar panels by 2024 Includes a power plant.
Duke President Melissa Seixas said: Energy Florida. “These investments will allow our customers in Florida to enjoy renewable energy while reducing costs by using less fuel.”
Through the Clean Energy Connections program, Duke Energy Florida customers can subscribe to solar and earn electricity bill credits without having to install or maintain their own equipment.
Customers subscribe to a portion of the solar energy from the company’s Clean Energy Connection Solar portfolio. A monthly subscription fee helps cover the costs of building and operating a renewable energy center, conveniently adding to the customer’s regular electricity bill. Customers also receive corresponding subscription credits representing the share of energy generated by the solar center in a given month, multiplied by the subscription credit rate, and escalated over the life of the subscription.
The monthly credit will always be greater than the program fee, so enrolled and income-qualified customers will see immediate savings on their bill. If you are currently participating in any of these or related programs, it can be used to qualify for: Additional Security Income, Medicaid, Temporary Assistance for Families in Need, SNAP-EBT , Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, and Duke Energy Neighborhood Energy Savers.
