How We Help

PoweringFlorida, an initiative by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and NextEra Energy, Inc., is committed to driving economic development and growth in the Sunshine State. With a focus on clean energy and sustainability, PoweringFlorida can provide numerous benefits for large and small businesses in Florida.

One of the primary advantages of partnering with PoweringFlorida is access to business programs and technical assistance to new and expanding businesses. This team provides economic development support for businesses, startups and entrepreneurs looking to grow in the Sunshine State. From site selection assistance to energy incentives, the economic development team can help companies take advantage of Florida's welcoming business climate and opportunities for growth.

What Florida Business Assistance Programs Are Available? 

Beyond PoweringFlorida's resources, there are several grant programs available from state government and county governments to provide financial assistance to small businesses, including small business grants provided by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The Florida Small Business Development Center also offers training and consulting services to help entrepreneurs develop a business plan and determine their eligibility for funding opportunities. Small business owners can take advantage of no-cost economic development incentives, including the Economic Development Rider and the Commercial Industrial Rider, provided by the statewide government.

Additional Florida business assistance programs include small business loans available through lenders and the U.S. Small Business Administration's loan program. The local government’s chamber of commerce can provide valuable small business assistance and resources, including procurement assistance and access to financial assistance programs.

Entrepreneurship is a vital part of Florida's economy, and the state offers many resources to support new business owners. The PoweringFlorida team has decades of experience in finding the right location, from Pensacola to Orlando to South Florida. Whether it’s new construction, businesses or partnerships, we have the know-how to help companies succeed.

IconQuote.pngWhen we were looking to base our global headquarters – to build really the hub of what is a global distribution network – Florida made sense. This is a terrific geographic location with access to South America, the Atlantic, world-class airports, and a workforce that brings talent, diversity, dynamism and capability.

This has been a terrific place to live. It has a standard of living that is fantastic, and that has become not only an important way to retain workforce here but also to attract.
