Florida Power & Light Completes Hydrogen Hub

Florida Power & Light Company announces the completion of a clean hydrogen hub pilot project, the Cavendish NextGen Hydrogen Hub.

This project draws from local solar power to produce clean hydrogen and blends 5% hydrogen with natural gas. It will allow the company to learn more about clean hydrogen and explore ways to provide low-cost, clean energy to FPL’s customers.

“Today marks another important step forward as we further our commitment to fostering a clean and cost-effective energy future that benefits our customers and Florida,” said  FPL President and CEO Armando Pimentel in a statement.

A portion of clean energy from the hydrogen hub flows directly to the energy grid, while the rest powers hydrogen production equipment called electrolyzers. The hydrogen is then compressed, stored and blended with natural gas. For this project, a 5% blend of hydrogen will be tested in one of the three natural gas combustion turbines on site.
