10-Year Site Plan Workshop Set for Wednesday


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold a workshop on Wednesday, September 7, to discuss the 10-year site plans of the 11 largest electric utilities in the state.  Each utility’s plan projects the system additions and modifications needed to maintain adequate reliability over the 10-year planning horizon.

The Commission is required by Florida Statute to perform an annual review of the utilities’ plans and classify them as “suitable” or “unsuitable.”  Commission findings are provided to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for consideration at electrical power plant and transmission line siting certification proceedings.

In addition, the Florida Reliability Coordinating Council will present the 2011 Regional Load and Resource Plan which encompasses all Florida electric generating plants and details the state’s transmission needs.

An opportunity for public comment will be provided.

The workshop is set for the following time and location:

Wednesday, September 7, 2011
9:30 a.m.
Betty Easley Conference Center
Joseph P. Cresse Hearing Room (Room 148)
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
