On 29 March 2019 Ars Technica reported:
On Thursday (28 March), Florida Power and Light (FPL) announced that it would retire two natural gas plants and replace those plants with what is likely to be the world's largest solar-powered battery bank when it's completed in 2021. The utility says its plan ... will save customers more than $100 million in aggregate through avoided fuel costs. FPL also says its battery and upgrade plan will help avoid 1 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions. ... Now, as natural gas is becoming a worst-offender in US carbon emissions sources, legacy natural gas plants are being replaced by cleaner sources.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The batteries will be charged by an existing solar plant in Manatee County, FPL said. ... The two natural gas plants that FPL will retire were built in the 1970s and have reached the end of their useful life.
