NextEra Energy Resources commissions its 10,000th megawatt of wind energy - 12/18/12:
NextEra (FPL by an older name) now produces enough Wind Power to run a city the size of Chicago, or it will.
Rather cool is to check out the company's Sustainability Report. http://www.nexteraenergy.com/news/index.shtml
This will give you an indication of what power generation companies should be talking about in terms of their production capacity and their carbon footprint.
"In 2011, 52 million tons of CO2 avoided
from zero-emitting generation and
customer energy efficiency programs."
And, compared to the industry, FPL -- I mean NextEra -- had:
"90% lower SO2 emissions,
80% lower NOx emissions, and
51% lower CO2 emissions."
This is compared to the industry, so the "industry, may or may not be pretty...
By NextEra is looking pretty pretty, by comparison.
It appears that this will put NextEra firmly in the leadership position of Wind Generation in the USA.
'via Blog this'
This is a sustainability-oriented blog. Topics pertaining Energy Efficiency (EE), Telecommuting, Sustainable Health/Wellness, etc., but mainly focus on solutions to non-sustainable practices and trying to address means and methods for resolving them. Sustainability is something that we all have to do, sooner or later! (Low politico please!).
