Renewable Energy Generation Workshop Planned

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC or Commission) took another step in its efforts to promote a balanced fuel supply for Florida. The Commission approved requests from the state’s five investor owned utilities for standard contracts related to the purchase of capacity and energy fueled by renewable resources.

The Commission will also hold a workshop on how best to encourage renewable generation resources based on recently enacted legislation.  The workshop will be open to the public and should be held early next year.  By June 2006, the PSC is expected to make additional decisions regarding the purchase of renewable generation based, in part, on the information obtained at the workshop.
