Fortune magazine ranked NextEra Energy the No. 1 company in the electric and gas utilities category for its 2016 “World’s Most Admired Companies" lists, NextEra said late last week.

The rankings are shaped by corporate executives, directors and industry analysts, who are asked in surveys to rate companies on nine attributes: people management, innovation, use of corporate assets, quality of management, social responsibility, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products/services and global competitiveness.

NextEra is the largest generator of electricity from sun and wind sources; it is the biggest renewable-energy company in the world. Over 4.8 million businesses and homes in Florida receive their electricity from NextEra's Florida Power & Light Co. utility.

"It's an honor to once again be recognized as one of the world's premier companies," Jim Robo, chairman and CEO of NextEra Energy, said. "Delivering for our customers is what we're all about, and it's our terrific team that makes it all happen. At our utility, Florida Power & Light Company, we're providing affordable, reliable and clean energy to help power Florida's economy, while at our wholesale subsidiary, NextEra Energy Resources, we're proudly generating more renewable energy from the wind and sun than any other company in the world."
