The 18,000-acre town unfolding northeast of Fort Myers will run on solar power from a 440-acre field of photovoltaic panels

Residents this month started to move into newly built houses at Babcock Ranch, a solar-powered town unfolding northeast of Fort Myers.

Spanning 18,000 acres, Babcock Ranch is expected to have 19,500 homes and a population of 50,000 residents within 25 years.

The town’s developer, Syd Kitson, CEO of Palm Beach Gardens-based Kitson + Partners, says Babcock Ranch has a 440-acre photovoltaic solar-power generation field, one of the world’s largest, built in partnership with Florida Power & Light. Babcock Ranch also will feature self-driving electrical buses, which are undergoing test runs in the center of the town.

The town started to take shape since the completion of construction of several commercial buildings in the town square, plus the first wave of new homes. [Fort Myers News-Press] — Mike Seemuth
