DEF announced recently the locations of three new solar power plants, which will provide a combined 195 megawatts. DEF will construct the Lake Placid Solar Power Plant on 380 acres in Highlands County. The 45 MW plant will consist of approximately 180,000 tracking solar panels. It is expected to enter service by December 2019. DEF acquired the development rights to the project from EDF Renewables, and DEF will construct, own, operate and maintain the project.
