The Palm Beach Post reports that Florida Power & Light Co.’s quest to receive a federal license to build two new nuclear reactors at its Turkey Point Power Plant has experienced yet another delay, but the company wants to charge another $22 million in pre-licensing costs to customers in 2017 — a decade before the the reactors could be built.

FPL spokesman Peter Robbins said Thursday the company is not releasing its new, projected construction schedule. The reason, he said, is due to uncertainty related to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission requiring an evidentiary hearing on the proposed injection of reclaimed water into deep wells at the Turkey Point site in southern Miami-Dade County.
