Are you considering solar energy for your home or business? Kissimmee Utility Authority has joined with 11 other Florida municipal electric utilities to form the Florida Municipal Solar Project, a large-scale community solar energy project that will enable them to provide renewable energy to their customers.

Many households and businesses in Kissimmee do not have access to solar because they rent, live in multi-tenant buildings, have roofs that are unable to host a solar system or experience some other mitigating factor. KUA’s community solar option provides homeowners, renters and businesses equal access to the economic and environmental benefits of solar energy generation, regardless of the physical attributes or ownership of their home or business. Community solar expands access to solar for all.

Designed to generate 223.5-megawatts of solar energy, this project is one of the largest municipal-backed solar projects in the United States. As part of the project, approximately 900,000 solar panels were built on three solar farms in Osceola and Orange counties.Combined, the three solar sites total approximately 1,200 acres, or the equivalent of 900 football fields filled with solar panels.

Additional solar capacity is expected to be operational by 2023. To learn more about going solar, click here.
