The project, led by ESA, a national solar developer based in Maitland, Florida, involves the installation of over 7,500 solar panels atop four buildings and two parking structures within AdventHealth’s corporate campus. The plan also includes the construction of solar canopies across the parking lot and the addition of 62 electric vehicle charging stations, signifying a robust push towards sustainable energy use and support for electric vehicles.

Christine Stewart, Vice President of Organizational Integration and Campus Administration at AdventHealth, highlighted the project’s alignment with the organization’s sustainability goals. She emphasized the importance of such initiatives in promoting the well-being of team members, patients, communities, and the environment. The project aims to cut down the campus’s reliance on conventional electricity by approximately one-third, resulting in an estimated $20 million savings over 20 years. Upon its completion by the end of 2024, it will be one of the largest private corporate solar installations in Florida, capable of generating enough electricity to power over 550 homes annually.
