Take Action: Tell the FL Public Service Commission to protect consumers from costly nuclear projects!
Are you tired of paying in advance for proposed new nuclear reactors that are unlikely to ever be built? Tune in to the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) hearings on nuclear cost recovery scheduled for August 5 – 9, 2013. The hearings for the cost recovery docket start at 9:30 am.
Voice your concerns! See the instructions below on how to submit comments.
Over the last several years, Florida Power and Light and Duke Energy Florida (which recently merged with Progress Energy) have been approved to collect well over $1 billion from their customers for new nuclear generation – including toward new reactors that the utilities have not even committed to building! So far the PSC has approved every penny requested through this bad, anti-consumer state law that was passed in 2006. Earlier this year, the law was changed to require the PSC to apply higher scrutiny to utility requests to pass on costs to customers. Now we’ll have to see if the PSC actually does its job. There are several ways you can participate.
