Tampa Electric announced this week that it brought four new solar plants online. The company said the new facilities will help offset the cost of rising fuel prices while furthering the company’s mission of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
“Thanks to our strategic investment in solar power, Tampa Electric customers are expected to save about $100 million in fuel costs this year alone,” said Tampa Electric president and CEO Archie Collins. “At a time when fuel costs are escalating, we know how important these savings are for customers.”
Overall, Tampa Electric produces enough solar energy to power 140,000 homes.
