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.

AMERICAN RESOURCEFULNESS

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.

BACK TO ENERGY ERA

 

Storing Energy

NEE-BabcockSolarBattery-BW (2)

As the nation's leader in energy storage, we're not only capturing energy from the wind and sun, we're storing it. We're ensuring Americans have the energy they need, whenever they need it.

BW-BabcockRanch-solar-storage (2)

We have the largest amount of operational storage in the U.S., and we're continuing to lead the industry with innovations such as our Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center - the largest combined solar-plus-storage facility in the country.

Energy storage benefits the power grid by balancing its load and responding to demand quickly. With more than 100 MW of storage capacity, we can store when energy demand is low and supply when energy demand is high.
