NextEra Energy Resources (NEER)

At NextEra Energy Resources and our affiliated entities, we’re the No. 1 owner of wind energy in North America. As of May 2016, we operate more than 12,560 MW of emissions-free wind energy with plans to build 1,500 MW in 2016, which would total more than enough to power a city the size of Chicago – the “Windy City.” NextEra Energy Resources is one of the largest generators of solar power in the United States and Canada. We generate solar energy at six sites in California, as well as at sites in New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada and Canada. Construction is currently underway on 10 solar sites in six states totaling more than 1,200 MW, all of which are expected to be producing emissions-free solar energy by the end of 2016. We’re increasingly tailoring solar solutions that enable commercial, institutional, utility and public power customers to produce clean, reliable energy from rooftops, parking structures and vacant land. We’re developing, building, financing and operating these systems, helping these customers control costs and meet their renewable energy goals.
