The goal is to make Florida a “world leader in the production of solar energy,” the Juno Beach-based electric utility says.FPL said it has secured solar sites across the state to build solar energy centers, and some will be in South Florida. They include two 74.5-megawatt solar energy centers in Palm Beach County, each with about 310,000 solar panels, according to FPL spokesman Chris McGrath.The program would increase solar energy to about 20 percent of FPL’s energy mix by 2030. It’s about 1 percent now, according to the utility, which uses mostly natural gas and nuclear energy.If FPL meets its solar installation goal, it would result in a 67 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions rate by 2030, according to FPL.The utility currently operates 14 major solar power plants and more than 200 smaller solar installations, totaling more than 935 megawatts of universal solar capacity currently powering customers.Eight solar plants, in Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie and Hendry counties, were placed into operation last year, according to an FPL news release. In July 2018, FPL began construction on four additional solar power plants, including the FPL Miami-Dade Solar Energy Center in South Florida. The other solar plants being built are in St. Lucie, Volusia and Columbia counties.More: FPL plans to add 30 million solar panels in Florida by 2030 Florida Power & Light makes major move to solar PV
Uganda reached their first AFCON for 39 years in 2017 and although they did not pass through the group stage, they looked comfortable at this level. They are one of the continent’s most improved sides, formidably organised by their French coach Sebastien Desabre and brighter in the final third than they were two years ago, too. They can hold their own with the best and assuming they come through Group A, will be a particularly awkward opponent to face later on.–Follow all the Uganda games with #JoyAFCON.
