Lake Worth Beach Signs on with FMPA Solar 2 Project
“By participating in large scale projects of this size, our Lake Worth Beach electric utility is able to bring carbon free energy to our customers at prices significantly lower than we could achieve if we were to try and do it on our own”
Ed Liberty
Lake Worth Beach Electric Utility Director

The FMPA led solar projects represent over 370 megawatts of solar generating capacity being shared by municipal utilities statewide, of which over 36 megawatts represents Lake Worth Beach’s share.  The City already has it’s own 1.7 megawatt solar energy farm atop a closed City landfill which has been operating since 2017.  By 2024 over 50% of the electricity we deliver to our customers will come from carbon free sources, which allows all of our customers to participate in our migration to cleaner energy without having to install their own rooftop systems.”

FMPA reports that by buying and installing the solar panels in such large quantities and using technology to make them as efficient as possible, the cost of solar energy from this project is about one-third the cost of electricity from a typical private, rooftop system.
