FPL / Turkey Point 6 & 7 project funding

Rate increases have been approved for customers of Florida Power & Light, which is on track to acquire funds to construct two more generating plants at its Turkey Point Generating Station. A recent article can be seen here.

Turkey Point 1, 2 and 5 are conventional (ie, non-nuclear) plants while Turkey Point 3 & 4 are Westinghouse 3-loop PWR's whose construction began in 1967. These plants are rated 2300 MWt / 693 MWe. The intention is that Turkey Point 6 & 7 will be Westinghouse AP1000 plants, rated 3415 MWt / 1117 MWe. You can find a link to Westinghouse's site on the links section and there's a great pdf brochure on the AP1000 that's downloadable free.
