neer_logoNextEra Energy Resources, a leading renewable energy company in North America, has revealed that its solar PV portfolio in North America totals about 1100 megawatts (or 1.1 gigawatts). 800 megawatts of that is still in the pipeline, with 300 megawatts planned for completion by the end of 2013. The remaining 500 megawatts are planned for completion by the end of 2016.

The largest project NextEra Energy Resources owns is the 250-megawatt Silver State PV power plant in Nevada that it bought from First Solar earlier this year.

Clearly, NextEra Energy is a company to keep an eye on. I’m sure we’ll have more big news about the company in the coming years. And, aside from solar PV, NextEra is also involved in wind energy, nuclear energy, solar thermal energy, and fossil fuels. Hopefully it makes a rapid and strong shift away from the dirtier sources and towards renewable energy resources! I mean, look how pretty solar power is:

    Zach! A few less exclamations! Next time! Please!!

    Headline police! They have 300 megawatts. Then they have some in construction, about 300 megawatts are in process (complete by end of 2013). The rest not so much, complete end of 2016 is like saying “we will think about it”. Likely some of that is for 2014 and is committed but who can say.

    I could have a been as truthful with “NextERA in green wash scam, claims 4 times amount of PV it really has!” or we could try balance “NextERA has 300 megawatts PV, expects to double by end of year! More already in the pipeline for past 2013″ Still positive, but now you are closer to what is real from just the head line.

    “The remaining 500 megawatts are planned for completion by the end of 2016.” They are hedging their bets, or waiting until the tax landscape is clearer. PV plants can be built in six months.
