PSC deciding Progress Energy Fla. rate adjustments

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (AP) -

The state Public Service Commission is considering annual rate adjustments sought by Progress Energy Florida including a charge for power purchased to replace output from a crippled nuclear reactor.
 
The commission will decide on fuel, purchased power and other adjustments on Tuesday after resolving a dispute over how much insurance money Progress can expect in 2013 for the damaged reactor at Crystal River.
 
The utility anticipates only the remaining $327.6 million not yet received on a $490 million replacement power policy.
 
Groups representing commercial customers contend Progress should expect a second $490 million because the reactor's containment building sustained two separate cracks in two different years.
 
That would reduce the replacement power costs passed on to customers by an equal amount.
 
A commission staff recommendations sides with the utility.
