summary
Summary
  • Renewable generation critically depends upon the availability of the resource;
  • Of the resources identified (WTE, LFB, Biomass), Florida is currently using 42.5% of the identified potential;
  • Interest in new renewable development is high, and developers are actively bringing potentially viable projects to the utilities; and
  • Innovative technologies to expand renewable opportunities in Florida are in development.
