Nothing brings a surge of solar energy in Florida like the mild, sunny days of April.
Hundreds of thousands of solar panels in Jacksonville,Gainesville, Orlando, Kennedy Space Center, Lakeland and Arcadia typically produce more watts of energy this month than any other. And every year — though not without setbacks — the state’s combined solar output increases.
Those Florida utilities most involved in solar will generate enough electricity this April for 12,000 homes. Just five years ago, that was regarded as an enormous amount of alternative energy for Florida. Before long, it may rank as a blip in the record books.
