Florida utility aims to eliminate carbon emissions by 2045

Terry Spencer of TechXplore reports that a Florida utility is aiming to eliminate CO2 emissions by 2045.

The C3 Take
  • Florida Power & Light (FPL), the Sunshine State’s largest utility, will invest heavily in renewable energy and green hydrogen technology to achieve their goal.
  • FPL will also continue to operate its two nuclear power plants and one renewable natural gas plant to meet energy needs.
  • While the plan still needs to be approved by the state utility commission, FPL’s leadership could play a pivotal role in reducing Florida’s CO2 emissions.

“Today, about two-thirds of FPL’s power comes from natural gas, which generates carbon emissions but less than oil and coal. Another 20% comes from nuclear, 4% from solar, while the rest comes from the Georgia plant and other sellers.”
