PROGRESS SAYS: NO WIND, NO SOLAR

The Chiefland Citizen reported Saturday that Progress Energy told the community that wind and solar power are not viable options in meeting residents' energy needs. Residents heard, "We need to do the nuclear facility."

At the January 23rd meeting of the Chiefland Chamber of Commerce, Denny George of Progress Energy and a director for the Chiefland Chamber of Commerce said that Florida does not have the sustainable wind for power generation, and that 'some' solar may be possible.

As noted here previously, Progress Energy has applied to construct a two-unit nuclear plant in south Levy County about two miles from Inglis. The plant could its first unit in production in 2016 and the second unit in 2017.
