Duke Energy Florida wants to build a solar power facility in an Orlando suburb.
The utility company said last week that it had filed permits to construct the Osceola Solar Facility by early 2016.
It will be built on 17 acres in Kenansville.
The construction of the Osceola County facility is part of an overall plan by Duke Energy to install 500 megawatts of solar power in Florida by 2024.
Each megawatt is equivalent to about 200 residential rooftop solar systems.
