The event will be started with the short tour of the Florida Power and Light (FPL) Energy Group Operations and Maintenance building before going out to the site to see the windmills up close. ? FPL Energy Group has taken operations of the windfarm from U.S Windpower Kennetech since January 30, 1998. ? At the site, FPL windmills produce a net power production of 420 Megawatts of power with 1,464 wind turbines. ? There are various types of wind generators with constant speed and variable speed units ranging from 100kW model KCS-56-100 to 400kW models KVS-33-400. ? The tour will be led by Mr. Thomas Kelley, Site manager and FPL Staff .?
