Florida PSC approves Tampa Electric’s Durrance solar project
The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) approved Tampa Electric’s 60-megawatt (MW) Durrance solar project in Polk County.
This is Tampa Electric’s fourth phase of solar expansion, part of an effort that has brought nine projects totaling more than 572 megawatts (MW) online between 2018 and 2020. This current Durrance solar project is scheduled to be complete in January 2021.
Through 2023, Tampa Electric will have invested more than $1.8 billion in 1,255 MW of solar projects. When these projects are all online, about 14 percent of Tampa Electric’s energy will be solar-generated.
