In Florida, the nation’s largest fossil-fuel power plant fired by natural gas is being fit with the world's second largest solar array in order to determine if conventional power generation to lower cost and reduce harm to the environment yields theoretical results in the real world.

FPL Group Utility is behind the project, which it hopes will be large enough to bring the cost of solar power as an alternative energy source into a commercially viable range.
