Babcock Ranch: A place in the sun
Green Development and Sustainability
It’s been almost a decade since developer Syd Kitson first approached Florida Power & Light about his plans to build what he envisions as the country’s most sustainable community at Babcock Ranch. By the end of this year, a key component of the new town will finally be up and running: The 74.5-megawatt FPL Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center will produce enough solar energy to power the Charlotte County community’s planned 19,500 homes and 6 million square feet of civic, commercial and industrial space.
