Progress Energy Florida Files Requests To Reduce Customer Rates

The Aug. 31 filing also included estimates for an increase in the cost of purchased power. Utilities routinely purchase power to ensure customers' energy needs are met in the most cost-effective manner possible.

The environmental compliance charge, filed Aug. 30, recovers the costs of environmental investments. Environmental improvements operating since May 2010 at the utility's two largest coal-fired units, Crystal River 4 and 5, now allow Progress Energy Florida to use less expensive coal while reducing average annual emissions at

the units by 80 percent; nitrogen oxides by approximately 93 percent and sulfur dioxide by approximately 97 percent.

The PSC hearings on the fuel, capacity, environmental and energy-efficiency charges will take place Nov. 5-7. The PSC will finalize Progress Energy's nuclear charge Nov. 20. At that time, the total 2013 customer bill will be determined.
