We have a long history of pursuing and supporting solar projects across the communities we serve. It all started in 2000 when Tampa Electric launched its Renewable Energy program (now called Sun Select) along with its first solar panel installation at the Museum of Science & Industry. Today, we own seven community-sited systems that generate 135 kilowatts (kW). Join others who purchase a portion of their electricity generated by solar. Our Sun Select program makes it easy.
We completed construction on a 2-megawatt (MW) large-scale solar installation at Tampa International Airport at the end of 2015 and a 23-MW installation on land we own in Apollo Beach in early 2017. The large-scale solar installations we have in operation today serve all of our more than 700,000 customers.
By January 2019, a total of 400 MW of solar will be operational with an additional 200 MW to be constructed by 2021.
