TECO fuels Florida Poly solar racecar team

by The 100 Companies

Florida Polytechnic University’s Phoenix Racing team is entering the national collegiate 2024 Formula Sun Grand Prix solar car race next month for the first time , thanks to a $7,500 donation from TECO.

The team has spent two years honing ideas and constructing its car, powered by the sun.

“Solar energy is so important to us as a company. We believe it’s part of our future,” said Julie Ward, TECO’s community investment manager. “The fact that they’re thinking about solar in different ways and the ingenuity the students are showing is impressive.”

The competition is July 16-18 in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
