NextEra Energy is the world's largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and sun, and has one of the lowest emissions profiles of any utility in North America. Our strategy is based on generating and delivering clean energy that's reliable and affordable. Executing this strategy is providing numerous benefits.
- Our environment is benefitting from the non-emitting and low-emitting fuel choices we've made for power generation and from our stewardship of natural resources;
- Our customers are benefitting from affordable, reliable and clean energy to power their homes and businesses;
- Our communities are benefitting from our investments that drive job creation and other economic activity in their communities;
- Our employees are benefitting by being challenged daily to work together to innovate, grow our company and improve continuously; and
- Our shareholders have benefitted from a total return over the 10 years ending Dec. 31, 2015 that far exceeded the total return for both the S&P 500 Index and the S&P 500 Utilities Index over that same period.
We expect that our strategic investments - in emissions-free wind and solar generation, low- emissions natural gas generation, safe and emissions-free nuclear power, industry-leading energy efficiency programs and transmission lines designed to deliver renewable energy where it's needed - will help us maintain and grow our position as a clean energy leader while continuing to provide benefits for our stakeholders.
From our commitment to environmental stewardship, pride in the communities we serve and the superior customer value we deliver – being a clean energy leader is not just the way we do business, it is our business.
