SUGAR LAND--July 3, 2019--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Florida is living up to its nickname: the Sunshine State. Wood Mackenzie and the Solar Energy Industries Association expect Florida to be the top U.S. state for utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) projects over the next six years, putting it at the forefront of a national trend that is defying the Trump administration's support for fossil fuels and tariffs. Solar installations nationwide in 2019 are expected to be up 25% from 2018, totaling 13.3 gigawatts (GW). Industrial Info is tracking more than $3 billion in active solar projects in Florida, about $1.8 billion of which is attributed to work from Florida Power & Light (FPL), a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Incorporated (NYSE:NEE) (Juno Beach, Florida).

Within this article: Details on some of the major solar-energy projects under development in Florida, including those from leading companies such as FPL and Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK).
