For most of the country, February is the time to batten down the hatches and stay inside to avoid the deep cold of winter. In Florida, it’s the best camping season of the year! Even better, families and friends spending a night in the great outdoors now have the opportunity to witness FPL SolarNow’s solar arrays harness the power of the sun to turn nature into clean energy.

Here are the top three locations to enjoy a night under the stars and SolarNow’s beautiful and educational solar arrays:

C.B. Smith Park (NEW!)

C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines is a Broward County lakeside camping oasis, featuring 299 acres of lush campground with room for 83 RVs. Beyond camping, the park offers Paradise Cove water park with four 50-foot-tall waterslides and a lazy river. You can also enjoy AllGolf, a family golfing center with a lighted driving range, a miniature golf course, batting cages and a pro shop. Once you’re done fishing and playing, stop by our solar trees to charge your phone and cool down in the shade for some well-earned relaxation.

Tradewinds Park (NEW!)

Broward County’s Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek is fun for the whole family no matter their interests. Visitors can enjoy horseback riding, biking and jogging paths, disc golf, the famous Butterfly World (home to 20,000 live butterflies from around the globe), nature trails, playgrounds and more. While you’re there, check out our two solar trees that provide a new nature-friendly element to the park.

Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral is a key hub for Florida’s rich history as a boating and cruising capital of the world. Did you know that it also features the picturesque Jetty Park Campground where campers can spend the night? During your stay, head over to the Port’s Exploration Tower to experience its seven floors of interactive exhibits and observation decks, along with our solar trees on the front lawn. You’ll marvel at the stunning architectural landmark and the power of solar energy up close!

SolarNow is growing with many new arrays under construction and scheduled to start generating power for FPL’s smart grid in 2020.
