Progress Energy Florida to introduce new solar initiatives
Progress Energy Florida, an energy company serving approximately 3.1 million customers in the Carolinas and Florida is about to introduce a number of new solar initiatives for its customers, eventually marketed as SunSense.
Assuming the Florida Public Service Commission approves, Progress Energy plans to update their 10-year plan to increase its existing energy-efficiency goal by 50% from 412 million kilowatt hours to 618 million kwh. Progress Energy plans to offer solar photovoltaic array subsidies for Florida homes and businesses and seeks to increase the solar water heater rebate from $450 to $500.
Progress Energy Florida CEO Jeff Lyash said, “As the costs of life’s essentials continue to rise, we know our customers want more options for saving on their energy bills.”
