LCG, Oct. 18, 2000Calpine Corp. and Tampa, Fla.-based Seminole Electric Cooperative Inc. jointly announced yesterday that they had asked Florida regulators to approve a deal under which Seminole would buy power from a 540 megawatt Calpine merchant power plant proposed for Auburndale, Fla., about 35 miles east of Tampa.

Under of the terms of the planned agreement, Seminole will have access to all of the output from the Osprey Energy Center for a period of 17 years, beginning with the plant's projected commercial operation date of June 2003, with an option to renew every 5 years. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Calpine said the contract would support its Petition for Determination of Need, which is currently pending before the Florida Public Service Commission. Hearings on the petition are scheduled tobegin November 29.
