Florida Commission Approves Seminole's Proposed Coal-fired Power Plant

LCG, July 19, 2006--The Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) yesterday gave unanimous consent to a new, 750-MW coal-fired power plant proposed by Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Seminole). Seminole filed a Certificate of Need to construct the electric generating unit in Putnam County, Florida with the FPSC in March.

The plan is to add a third, coal-fired unit at Seminole's existing 1,300 MW Seminole Generating Station. The schedule calls for commercial operations to commence on May 1, 2012. The power from the new plant is needed to meet the growing electric load of Seminole's ten member cooperatives.

Seminole's plans include upgrades to the existing units designed to reduce air emissions. The new emission control equipment includes selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and scrubber systems for better removal of sulfur dioxide (SO2). A co-benefit of the upgrades is the reduction of mercury emissions. The emission control work on the existing units is to begin this year and to be completed by 2010.

The total project is estimated to cost $1.4 billion, including over $250 million to improve emission controls at the existing coal units.
