NextEra outlines plans to convert two Gulf Power coal units to gas

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):NextEra Energy Inc. said it plans to combine its flagship utility Florida Power & Light Co. with recently acquired Gulf Power Co. into a single electric operating system starting in 2022.The two utilities would be integrated after the North Florida Resiliency Connection project, a 176-mile, 161-kV transmission line connecting Gulf Power’s service territory in the Florida panhandle with FPL’s customers in the state’s northeast, comes online, the subsidiaries said in a joint April 2 filing on their 10-year site plan with the Florida Public Service Commission.According to the site plan, the NextEra units will focus on decarbonizing Gulf Power’s generation fleet through several changes, including solar additions and converting two coal-fired units to natural gas “that will significantly improve its emission profile.”“As a result, after accounting for these planned changes to generating units in both FPL’s and Gulf’s areas, the clean energy percentage for the larger integrated FPL and Gulf utility system is projected to climb to approximately 99%” by 2029, the utilities said.Gulf Power owns one coal plant outright, the 924-MW Crist plant in Florida’s Escambia County, and shares ownership in two other plants with utility affiliates of its former parent company, Southern Co.[Ellen Meyers]More ($): NextEra resource plan links FPL, Gulf Power, uses single name NextEra outlines plans to convert two Gulf Power coal units to gaslast_img read more
