About 9,000 customers have agreed to pay an additional $9.75 on their monthly electricity bills to support renewable energy through the company’s Sunshine Energy program. The company has agreed to build 150 kilowatts of solar power capacity in Florida for every 10,000 customers who sign up, and it expects to pass that mark within a month or so. [ more ]
