Solar Energy Remains a Dream in Florida

In an energy deal cut last year that promised to inject larger-scale solar power into the Tampa Bay area for the first time, TECO Energy agreed to buy electricity from a proposed Polk County plant for the next 25 years. TECO’s partner, Energy 5.0 of West Palm Beach, would build and run the plant, a 25-megawatt solar photovoltaic generating station.

Now the much-anticipated deal is dead, a significant blow to renewable energy in the,ahem, Sunshine State.
