What’s in a name?

A lot, apparently.

FPL Group, Inc. is changing its name to NextEra Energy, Inc. in an effort to highlight the company’s commitment to clean energy development. The company said the change also will help distinguish between the group and its utility subsidiary, Florida Power & Light Company.

FPL is one of the largest renewable energy providers in the country, claiming a carbon dioxide emissions rate that is 50% below the industry average. However, they also own traditional and nuclear power plants.
