Although power plant siting and
transmission lines are treated as separate processes in Chapter 403, F.S.,
they have been combined into one application by the Applicant.
The review process will be conducted on separate but parallel tracks.
The transmission lines are being reviewed in an earlier timeframe
than the power plant, although the transmission lines will only be necessary
if the unit 6 and unit 7 installations are approved.
the power plant and transmission lines will be reviewed by each affected
use and zoning consistency (county only);
of the project on the public; and
with applicable regional or local plans and land development
Last October, Council staff
determined that the information provided by FPL for the transmission line
portion of the application was sufficient for review.
A preliminary statement of issues pertaining to the transmission
lines was also submitted at that time.
After six rounds of completeness review, DEP found the transmission
portion of the application complete on December 3, 2010.
The plant and non-transmission portion of
the application is still being reviewed for completeness.
Each affected agency will issue a
Final Report summarizing the above review parameters and may recommend
approval or denial of the application.
Conditions of certification may also be proposed.
