Progress Energy Nuclear Plants Approved

Published July 15th, 2008
Florida has 5 nuclear plants, but could have 9 over the next decade. A state regulatory agency today gave the go ahead for 2 new plants on the gulf coast near an existing plant at Crystal River. As Mike Vasilinda tells us, it will take at least 8 years for the power to start flowing, but electric users will see a bill as early as next year.

Crystal River is the home of one of the state’s 5 nuclear plants. It’s owner, Progress Energy, will build two new plants on land ten miles to the north
