Duke Energy Florida will begin construction on two new solar projects in the state later this month. The projects, located in Bay and Madison counties, are part of Duke’s community solar program, Clean Energy Connection. The projects should be completed by the end of the year, creating approximately 200 to 300 temporary jobs during that time.
Mule Creek Renewable Energy Center (74.9-MW) will be built on approximately 700 acres that includes thoughtful site buffers for the community in Bay County, Florida.
After a successful community open house, Winquepin Renewable Energy Center (74.9-MW) will be built on approximately 530 acres in Madison County, Florida.
“These new renewable energy projects not only help strengthen the energy diversity in the state and advance our clean energy goals, but they also bring additional economic benefits to the communities we serve,” said Melissa Seixas, Duke Energy Florida state president.
