I never thought answering the question: “Why isn’t there more solar power in Florida” would be so complicated, but it turns out it kind of is.
After talking to three solar energy professionals, Julia and I have realized that there’s no clear-cut reason as to why we don’t use more solar power in Florida. We do use some solar energy —- an astronomically small amount (out of all the electricity in South Florida, only 0.06%, comes from solar) and the reason why seems to be a combination of political, financial, and meteorological factors.
Julia says she’s still trying to understand why the sunshine state has such a dark cloud over the issue—which interestingly enough, is apparently a factor. FPL considers Florida’s sometimes cloudy skies to be a barrier to solar power in Florida, but we haven’t been able to find out what the science behind that determination is…yet.
