Florida ends voluntary green energy program

Florida utility regulators today powered down an $11.4 million program designed to promote green energy, but whose budget overwhelmingly funded marketing and administrative costs.

The program, operated by Florida Power & Light and Austin, Texas-based Green Mountain Energy Company, charged willing FPL customers a $9.75 monthly fee in addition to their regular power bills. The parties were supposed to develop an extra 150 kilowatts of solar energy for every 10,000 residential customers who signed on to the Sunshine Energy program.
