Nuclear Plant for Levy Moves Forward
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist and the Florida
Cabinet have approved Progress Energy's bid to build a nuclear
power plant in Levy County.
However, that doesn't mean the St. Petersburg-based company's
request will ultimately go through.
Progress Energy still requires approval from environmental
regulators and the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission before it
can begin construction on the project, about 10 miles north of
Crystal River and eight miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico.
The Florida Public Service Commission approved the new plant a
year ago, along with two new nuclear generators at the Turkey Point
facility in South Florida.
