FPL Group changed its name to NextEra Energy, reflecting the company's commitment to the environment and its expansion outside of Florida. The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange as NEE.
The company began the first of several modernizations of its 1960s oil- and gas-fired power plants, including Riviera Beach, Cape Canaveral and Port Everglades.
The company celebrated the commissioning of its 10,000th megawatt of wind energy.
NextEra Energy completed the largest multi-state nuclear uprate project in U.S. history. The multi-billion dollar expansion at St. Lucie, Turkey Point and Point Beach involved six separate nuclear units.
The company completed a massive grid modernization project in Florida, including the installation of more than 4.5 million smart meters and deployment of smart grid technology.
The company launched NextEra Energy Partners, a growth-oriented limited partnership to acquire, manage and own contracted clean energy projects with stable, long-term cash flows. At the time, it was the most successful IPO of its kind.
