TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida Power & Light on Friday announced plans to add four solar-power projects that will begin generating electricity by mid-2019.

The projects will be in St. Lucie, Miami-Dade, Volusia and Columbia counties.

Each of the plants will have a capacity of 74.5 megawatts and would combine to provide enough energy for about 60,000 homes, FPL said.

The utility has 14 other large solar plants in the state.
