Natural Resources

Florida is a natural fit for solar companies, but it has more to offer than just its famous sunshine. The state’s mild climate, fertile land, 1,350 miles of coastline, and proximity to the Gulf Stream mean plentiful resources for the testing, manufacturing, and deployment of a wide range of ocean energy R&D, biomass testing and production, and ocean energy technologies.
