Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) is planning to build “the world’s largest solar-powered battery” to replace a pair of 1970’s-era natural gas power generators in the state.

The 409MW/900MWh Manatee Energy Storage Centre (MESC), which will receive power from FPL’s existing solar power plant in Manatee County, is expected to start operation in late 2021.

FPL is also planning a series of smaller battery installations, solar power plants, and efficiency upgrades to existing combustion turbines across the state, in order to replace 1,638MW of generating capacity.
