FPL plans to install more than 5,000 solar panels in multiple canopy-like structures, which will offer areas of shade for race fans while generating zero-emissions energy. The electricity generated will help power the Speedway’s operations and FPL’s 4.7 million customers via the grid.

FPL announces partnership during its annual storm drill, which tests company’s response and restoration processes should a hurricane strike its territory. This first-of-a-kind partnership will enhance disaster response capabilities for both organizations.
