Any idea what they are using for storage or does it stop at night?

They ran new high power lines in to the solar farm. The power generated goes directly into the Florida Power and Light power stations and feeds to where ever needed. When the output drops below a certain level the outgoing power shuts down. There is large control station inside the farm. Panels rotate on an axis to stay aligned with the most direct sunlight.

Large scale battery storage is in the plans to be added later.

A lot of local officials have complained about the name of the facility. They are not aware that Suwannee is a word taken from the Timucuan word for Echo River. We are surrounded by idiots.

Very nice, excepting the dim twits of course.
