Associated Press Release

JUNO BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Power & Light is installing solar panels at nearly 100 schools across the state.

The state's largest utility announced Tuesday it is starting several solar power initiatives. One project calls for putting in panels at schools and science centers located in 23 counties.

FPL said that the electricity generated will be credited back on the school's electric meter to help reduce electric bills.

The company also said that it will be offering rebates to customers who plan to install solar water heating or solar panels.

FPL will pay out $9 million on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers can apply for rebates starting on Oct. 15.

The company is also going to install solar water heaters in more than 400 homes being built or refurbished by affordable housing groups.
