Our Past Powers Our Future

What was true then is still true today. Hard work and will power continue to move us forward. Helping us power the American dream. Helping us invest in infrastructure that puts Americans to work and helping us redefine American energy. This is our era. This is America’s Energy Era.


When the Florida land boom of the 1920s created an unprecedented demand for energy, we brought together a patchwork of enterprises to help power cities that popped up overnight. That resourceful spirit is at the center of everything we do – from helping power America’s workforce during WWII to providing NASA with energy as they worked to put a man on the moon.


Our market capitalization makes us the largest utility company in the world, proud to be built and based in America. We generate more wind and solar energy than any other company in the world. And, as one of the country’s most diverse energy company, we’re using natural gas, nuclear, wind and solar to generate more electricity than any other electric utility in the United States.
