Site Remediation and Restoration

Companies like ours that have been operating for many years or have acquired sites from other companies have a responsibility to comply with all laws and regulations concerning petroleum and chemical contamination at company-owned sites and to prevent future occurrences. At NextEra Energy, we're committed to addressing these issues, so that our soil and groundwater are not degraded and we live up to our strategy to be the clean energy leader. Site remediation activities are conducted in compliance with all local, state and federal requirements. Remedial activities range from associated removing underground storage tanks to decommissioning assets as part of our efforts to modernize our power generation fleet. While remediation is often driven by regulation, we also look for opportunities to implement best practices that go beyond regulatory requirements.
