Ten-Year Site Plans Show Need for Fuel Diversity and Transmission Planning.
Florida Public Service Commission News Release, 12/19/06.

"The Review of 2006 Ten-Year Site Plans for Florida's Electric Utilities
(Review) approved by the Public Service Commission (PSC) identifies the
need for greater fuel diversity and additional coordinated transmission
planning.

The Ten-Year Site Plans, submitted annually by eleven utilities and
reviewed by PSC staff, indicate that the state's utilities plan to
construct about twice as much new gas-fired capacity as solid fuel
capacity by 2015.  In the Review, staff recommended steps toward wider
fuel diversity including encouraging renewable generation and increased
demand-side management.  Construction of additional solid fuel plants
like clean coal and nuclear are also encouraged to achieve a more
balanced fuel supply."
