The parent of Florida Power & Light — the primary power provider in Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties — said Wednesday that it will sell $1.5 billion of equity shares, potentially for use in the acquisition of Dallas-based utility company Energy Future Holdings Corp.

The equity shares from Juno Beach-based NextEra Energy are being sold to Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Credit Suisse and Mizuho Securities.
