FPL opens new gas-fueled Port Everglades power plant

12 Apr 2016

 Florida Power & Light has officially commissioned its new Port Everglades Next Generation Clean Energy Center. The $1.2 billion plant begun operations on April 1 – two months ahead of schedule.


"This facility is the equivalent of taking a car from the 1960s and replacing it with a hybrid, which is more fuel efficient and produces less emissions," said Eric Silagy, FPL president and CEO.

The new plant will run on 30 percent less fuel than its predecessor and will save FPL customers approximately $400 million over the next 30 years, according to the utility giant.
