FPL gets pushback on request to keep customers on the hook for speculative nuclear reactors

The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will consider Florida Power and Light’s (FPL) request to find it “reasonable” to pursue licenses for its speculative Turkey Point 6 & 7 nuclear reactors – and recover costs from customers. Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) and other consumer parties are challenging FPL’s request. This unfair request continues to keep all the financial risk of construction on customers for an increasingly speculative project.

FPL claims it plans to build the two proposed nuclear reactors, but it will not commit to actually build them – it will not even commit to a price tag.

The hearing can be followed online on the Public Service Commission Website (Docket No. 20170009) at: http://www.psc.state.fl.us/Conferences/AudioVideoEventCoverage
