Irby & FPL ARE leading the charge on battery storage. 

Irby Construction is currently at work on site at Manatee Battery Energy Storage Center (BESS) and substation, which upon completion will consist of 132 new battery line-ups connected to a new 230/34.5 kV substation. The Florida Power and Light project includes placement of 54,133 individual battery modules on a site that is the size of 3 football fields.

When complete it will be the world’s largest solar-powered battery.

The 409MW/900MWh Manatee energy storage center, will accelerate retirement of fossil fuel generation, saving FPL customers more than $100 million while eliminating more than 1 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
