To create the nation’s first truly solar-powered city, Babcock Ranch partnered with the state’s largest utility company, Florida Power & Light, to install 15o megawatts of utility-scale solar generation, a solar power array of unprecedented size and scope, spreading across 870 acres.


A leader in green energy among utilities nationwide, FPL has one of the lowest emissions profiles and one of the top energy-efficiency programs. By 2030, FPL is projected to generate more than 40% of all its electricity emissions-free. FPL’s parent company, NextEra Energy is the world’s largest provider of solar and wind energy.

FPL has also earned praise for reliability, winning the ReliabilityOne AwardTM three times in four years, even as it has helped Florida business and industry reach higher earnings, thanks to affordable rates that are 41% lower than the national average for large industrial users.

For further cost savings here at Babcock Ranch, a unique, negotiable incentive rate is available for qualifying projects that generate at least 2 megawatts of new demand, while a discounted rate over 5 years is also available, based on job creation and demand.

Natural gas, the most efficient and environmentally friendly of non-renewables, provides double redundancies, through power generation provided by FPL and through a direct gas main line, provided by TECO.

Today’s companies require extraordinary performance and reliability from the digital networks that keep them connected to the world. Babcock Ranch partnered with Century Link to connect our business (and residential) community with a fully redundant fiber ring architecture with a North and South entrance served from two different “feeder” cities to ensure ultimate reliability of 24/7 services. The vast fiber network was built and scaled to support the next 20+ years to support out town’s expected exponential growth.
