Decarbonize Ourselves 

Our commitment to reaching Real Zero by no later than 2045 starts with decarbonizing our own operations. We’ve been working toward this goal for decades as an extension of our core values.

Share our learnings 

The work we’re doing will drive the decarbonization of the rest of the U.S. power sector—investor-owned utilities (IOUs), municipalities and cooperatives—through continued investments and innovation in wind, solar, storage and green hydrogen projects.

Decarbonize America

NextEra Energy will lead the decarbonization of the U.S. economy – by working to become the preferred partner for customers in every industry, who share our vision of a sustainable, carbon-free future. We’ll use our experts and data analytics to help our commercial and industrial customers to reach their own net zero or Real Zero commitments.
