OUC announces it will end coal-fired power generation by 2027

-

The Orlando Utilities Commission management has announced its intention to phase out coal-fired power generation “significantly” by 2025 and to have completely eliminated it by 2027.

Energy storage is a key component of meeting this goal as Florida, despite being referred to as “The Sunshine State” experiences an average of 277 partly cloudy days a year and cannot solely rely on solar production every day to meet demands.

OUC will be investing in solar energy and energy storage as its main source of new energy over the next few decades with the goal of reaching Net Zero CO2 emissions by 2050. This initiative is a direct result of the utility’s Electric Integrated Resource Plan, which that launched in July 2019 and that Bungalower readers were invited to take part in.
