Duke Energy Florida has filed the locations of its three new solar power plants.

The Duette plant will be built on approximately 520 acres in Manatee County. Once operational, the 74.5-MW facility will consist of approximately 227,000 single-axis tracking solar panels, capable of producing enough electricity to power approximately 23,000 homes at peak production annually.

The Charlie Creek plant will be built on 610 acres in Hardee County. The 74.9-MW facility will consist of approximately 235,000 single-axis tracking solar panels, capable of producing enough electricity to power approximately 23,000 homes at peak production annually.

The Archer facility will be built on 630 acres in Alachua County. This 74.9-MW plant will consist of approximately 220,000 single-axis tracking solar panels, capable of producing enough electricity to power approximately 23,000 homes at peak production annually.

During construction, each solar project creates approximately 200 to 300 temporary jobs. All three solar power plants are expected to be finished in late 2021.
