FPL SolarNow Lights Up for the Holidays
South Florida is lighting up for the holidays. As temperatures get cooler here in Florida, it’s time to celebrate the holidays with family and friends.
This holiday season, FPL SolarNow is thankful for the role solar plays in creating clean energy that benefits us all. By educating the next generation about the power of the sun, we are committed to bringing to light the many ways solar energy is beneficial to the environment and the community. Seeing solar energy up close is just one way to learn about and appreciate the world’s most important source of energy.
This winter, check out our lit-up solar trees and visit one of our partner locations for fun-filled holiday events that are perfect for the whole family!
O’ Solar Tree
Christmas trees aren’t the only trees lighting up this holiday season. Make sure to check out select FPL SolarNow locations to see our solar trees lit up in dazzling lights. These unique, innovative structures also generate clean energy for the community.
Catching a flight out of Palm Beach International Airport or visiting your relatives in South Florida for the holidays? Three lit up solar trees at PBIA lead the way on dark, winter nights. Stop by before you take off or see if you can spot them from the air!
ArtsPark at Young Circle is a dynamic venue with a variety of events that are perfect for the holidays. In addition to our two lit up solar trees, you can enjoy Christmas Near The Beach. For the past 15 years, this event has become a special tradition for the Hollywood community. On December 11, visit the park to see Santa, sing Christmas carols, listen to holiday music and eat tasty treats.
You can also see our lit up solar trees at the following locations: Fort Myers Centennial Park, Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral, Riverfront Veterans Memorial Park and Paradise Coast Sports Complex.
