"At Duke Energy, we are always looking ahead for innovative technologies that can help us better serve Florida customers," said Melissa Seixas, Duke Energy Florida state president. "These battery sites will help us continue to improve local reliability for our customers and provide significant energy services to the power grid."

As the grid manager and operator, Duke Energy Florida can optimize the versatility of battery technology to provide multiple customer and electric system benefits, to include balancing energy demand, managing intermittent resources such as solar energy, increasing energy security and deferring traditional power grid upgrades.

  • The recently completed Micanopy battery site in Alachua County is 8.25 megawatts and is located 15 miles southwest of Gainesville. The site provides a cost-effective solution for focused power quality and reliability for the town of Micanopy and nearby neighbors.
  • Completed in April, the second site is 5.5 megawatts and is located 1.5 miles south of the Florida-Georgia border in the town of Jennings in Hamilton County. This site will continue to improve power reliability through energy storage as an alternative solution to installing new and more costly distribution equipment.

Duke Energy Florida's continued investment in battery technology reflects the company's belief that energy storage plays a significant and evolving role in how energy is delivered to customers now and in the future.

Earlier this year, Duke Energy Florida announced the completion of three battery projects in Gilchrist, Gulf and Highlands counties. The new sites are part of Duke Energy's commitment to have six battery sites, totaling 50 megawatts, in operation in Florida this year.

Duke Energy Florida's commitment to renewable energy

With a combined investment of more than $2 billion, Duke Energy Florida's solar generation portfolio will include 25 grid-tied solar power plants that will benefit all Florida customers and provide 1,500 megawatts of emission-free generation and approximately 5 million solar panels in the ground by 2024.

Duke Energy remains committed to the deployment of battery technology in Florida. A 3.5-megawatt solar plus storage microgrid site will be added at Pinellas County'sJohn Hopkins Middle School. The microgrid will support grid operations and provide backup electric power to the school when it must operate as a special needs hurricane evacuation shelter. The microgrid consists of a 1-megawatt solar parking canopy array, a 2.5-megawatt battery and associated controls, which will store and deploy clean, renewable energy to the school and grid. The project enhances electric service and grid operations for customers.

In addition to expanding its battery storage technology and solar investments, Duke Energy Florida is investing in transportation electrification to support the growing U.S. adoption of electric vehicles (EV) through the addition of 627 EV charging stations, including 52 DC Fast Chargers, and a modernized power grid to deliver diverse and reliable energy solutions to best serve our customers.
