President Clinton, Crist announce FPL solar power plans
Gainesville Sun/Associated Press, 26 September 2007.

"NEW YORK: Pushing politics aside, Republican Gov. Charlie Crist and
former Democratic President Bill Clinton took the stage together to
announce that Florida Power & Light will build a solar power plant in
Florida as part of a $2.4 billion clean energy program.

"This is a huge deal for America and I think potentially a huge deal for
people all around the world who want to do this," said Clinton, who
introduced Crist and company Chief Executive Lew Hay at the beginning of
the Clinton Global Initiative conference.

The conference is focused on finding ways to solve some of the world's
most pressing problems including poverty and climate change.

Clinton said the FPL plant will produce 500 megawatts of power and
reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2 million tons over five years."
