New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly.

Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

Florida PSC Approves Cost Recovery for New Nuclear Reactors

LCG, October 25, 2011--The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) yesterday approved cost recovery for construction of nuclear reactors and additions to existing nuclear plants for Progress Energy Florida (PEF) and Florida Power & Light Company (FPL). The PSC approval of over $280 million provides for the utilities to begin recovering some nuclear project costs during the lengthy construction process in order to reduce financing costs.

For PEF, the PSC approved $85,951,036 cost recovery associated with construction of Levy Units 1 and 2, two, 1,100-MW nuclear reactors, plus capacity increases at its existing nuclear facility at Crystal River. When completed, these projects will add approximately 2,380 MW of new nuclear base load generation to PEF's system. The PSC states that the decision will saves PEF customers $500,000 in Project Management Costs for adding capacity to Crystal River Unit 3. The decision incorporates a stipulation that resolves whether PEF prudently managed its Unit 3 uprate license agreement.

The PSC approved $196,088,824 of cost recovery for FPL associated with (i) construction of Turkey Point Units 6 and 7 and (ii) adding capacity to existing Turkey Point Units 3 and 4 and St. Lucie Units 1 and 2. In total, FPL's projects will add over 2,600 MW of nuclear capacity. When combined with the PEF projects, Florida will gain about 5,000 MW of carbon-free, nuclear power when these plants commence commercial operations.
