The Sorrento solar farm will occupy just under 200 rural acres in Lake County and provide an expected 40 megwawatts of power.

Power generated from the solar plant is expected to displace over 25,000 tons of carbon CO2  annually while generating an around 64 million kilowatt hours per year, which is about enough to power around 8,000 typical Florida homes. The power produced will be sold to Progress Energy Florida under a power purchase agreement.
