Renewable resources, mainly solar energy and biomass, plus petroleum coke and generation at industrial plants that use multiple fuels, accounted for almost all the remaining net generation in Florida.33 Almost all the state's recent and planned additions of generating capacity are natural gas-fueled or solar powered.34, Florida is the third-largest electricity consumer in the nation, after Texas and California.35 However, the state does not produce enough electricity to meet its power needs, and electricity demand is expected to increase as the state's population continues to grow.36,37,38 The residential sector, where more than 9 in 10 Florida households use electricity as their primary energy source for home heating and air conditioning, consumes more than half of the electricity used in Florida, the largest share of any state.39,40 The commercial sector accounts for about two-fifths of state consumption, and the industrial sector uses most of the rest. Long before climate change was a headline concern, FPL Group made a strategic decision to become a clean-energy leader. Michigan
