Florida Power & Light Co. (FPL), a subsidiary of the FPL Group, and St. Lucie County officials recently announced their intention to build a wind power project near the coastline in St. Lucie County, Fla.

While wind in Florida is not consistently strong and reliable enough to produce a large amount of electricity, FPL will explore ways to best use this resource, the company says. FPL still needs to address a number of factors, including the suitability of a site, environmental considerations and permitting requirements.

"This is a great first step in seeking more renewable generation resources in Florida," says Armando Olivera, FPL's president. "Adding wind will help diversify our fuel mix and is emissions-free."
