Florida considers world's largest photovoltaic solar plant

Florida regulators on Tuesday will consider Florida Power & Light's request to build three solar plants that would include the largest of its type in the world.

The staff of the Public Service Commission backs the request, saying FPL's plans for 110 megawatts of solar power meet the requirements of a bill recently passed by the Legislature allowing for a utility to have full-cost recovery of renewable energy projects up to 110 megawatts.

The proposal includes a 25-megawatt plant in DeSoto County, which FPL says would be the largest photovoltaic facility in the world, plus a 75-megawatt solar thermal plant in Martin County and a 10-megawatt photovoltaic at the Kennedy Space Center.
