Florida Power & Light has just made history with a landmark agreement that will not only create 20,000 jobs, but will also provide renewable energy to Babcock Ranch, Florida with the world’s largest solar power plant. It’s being called the first solar powered city because the amount of sunshine it will collect throughout the day will more than make up for the amount of power used at night – it will actually be a net exporter of solar power.

Construction of the new City Center will begin next summer, but the solar plant to power it all will begin construction later this year with an estimated price tag of $400 million. When it is all completed, Babcock Ranch will certainly stand as an example to all other cities looking to adopt renewable energy.
