Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and Audubon Florida are partnering to provide a habitat for plants, birds and pollinators along with a home for 2.5 million solar panels. FPL's eight new solar power plants are expected to produce estimated net lifetime savings of more than $100 million for FPL customers by reducing fossil fuel use. Each FPL solar plant encompasses several hundred acres on which roughly 30,000 solar panels will be installed. The site of each new facility is designed to allow a significant amount of the land to be planted with native grasses, trees, shrubs and vines. Plants are being chosen to provide food for birds and pollinators. Quality wetlands are being preserved, which also provide habitat for birds. The FPL Coral Farms Solar Energy Center in Putnam County and the FPL Loggerhead Solar Energy Center in St. Lucie County are the first sites with approved plans to become Solar Sanctuaries.
