NextEra Energy, Inc. is a leading clean energy company.
Our 2009 revenues totaled more than $15 billion. We operate nearly 43,000 megawatts of generating capacity. We have more than 15,000 employees in 27 states and Canada.
We have two principal subsidiaries.
NextEra Energy Resources is the largest generator in North America of renewable energy from the wind and sun. Florida Power & Light Company serves approximately 4.5 million customer accounts in Florida and is one of the largest rate-regulated electric utilities in the country.
NextEra Energy also operates the third largest nuclear power generation fleet in the United States.
We have eight nuclear units at five plant sites in Florida, New Hampshire, Iowa and Wisconsin. These facilities generate more than 5,900 megawatts of emissions-free electricity, enough to supply the needs of more than 1.3 million households.
NextEra Energy has one of the nation's cleanest generation fleets.
Clean natural gas, nuclear, wind and other renewable resources accounted for more than 90 percent of the company's electricity output in 2008, compared with 50 percent for the industry as a whole. Our 2008 carbon dioxide emission rate of 779 lbs/MWh was much better than the most recently available industry average of 1,310 lbs/MWh. In fact, if every utility were as clean as NextEra Energy, CO2 emissions from the electric power sector would be reduced by 49 percent and total U.S. carbon emissions would be reduced by 20 percent ' the equivalent of removing 209 million cars, or roughly 80 percent of all vehicles, from U.S. roadways. – less–ZoomInfo
