On August 13, 2021, Power Engineering reported progress at the Manatee Battery Energy Power Center. The story provides an overview of the project scope. Irby is on-site for Florida Power and Light having been awarded the project in September 2020. The project is now 75% complete.

The story features FPL President and CEO Eric Silagy.

“With one milestone after another, FPL is following through on its steadfast commitment to make Florida a leader in sustainability and resiliency as we consistently deliver America’s best energy value – electricity that’s not just clean and reliable, but also affordable,” said FPL President and CEO Eric Silagy. “In June, we said goodbye to coal by dismantling FPL’s last coal plant in Florida just as we surpassed 40% of the way toward completing our ’30-by-30’ plan to install 30 million solar panels by 2030. Soon, the world’s largest solar-powered battery will begin serving customers, and we’ll turn our attention to an innovative green hydrogen pilot project – which could unlock the potential for a 100% carbon-free energy future.”
