Michael Putney, you do know there aren’t run-off elections in Florida any more, right? Florida Politics is a statewide, new media concern covering campaigns, elections, government, policy, and lobbying in Florida. A class-action lawsuit was filed against Duke Energy Florida and Florida Power & Light Co. The issue ranks among the most controversial in recent Florida history, forcing customers of monopoly utilities to take on the financial risk of building nuclear power plants, projects prone to extreme cost overruns. The suit claims Duke Energy Florida, which provides the bulk of electricity to the Tampa Bay and west-central Florida areas, unlawfully charged customer higher rates to cover more than $1.2 billion in expenses at its Crystal River nuclear power plant in Citrus County and at its proposed (and now shelved) Levy County nuclear plant site.
At the core of this dispute, according to the lawsuit, are nuclear costs imposed on ratepayers by orders of the Florida Public Service Commission under a law passed in 2006 by Florida legislators and approved by then-Gov.
Berman served as a special assistant attorney general and lead counsel for the largest settlement ever a€” $206 billion a€” against the tobacco industry, as well as counsel for major antitrust, ERISA (pension) and U.S.
The suit against Duke Energy and FPL seeks relief for anyone who is a customer of either of the utilities, including reimbursement from the companies for costs passed on to the customers to fund the companies' nuclear projects. The USFSP research project is seeking to learn more about renewable solutions and how to store and use energy from the sun. The 5th Avenue site system uses solar energy in the garage for lights, elevators, and electric-vehicle charging stations, and the rest is stored in battery systems or put on the electric grid for immediate use. The funding for the new, larger energy storage system generates an opportunity to build upon existing battery technology. Duke Energy Florida’s SEEDS (Sustainable Electrical Energy Delivery Systems) program, which includes two battery storage projects at the University of South Florida at St.
Twenty-four K-12 schools in the Duke Energy Florida service territory have received 25-kilowatt-hour battery backup systems funded by the company that are integrated with their solar PV installations.

I am guessing that there is a warranty on these batteries, but ya, sometimes batteries, like cars, can be lemons. What I’m noticing consistently, is that solar panels make everything below them, very dark. That shade is actually a huge benefit in hot climates, and has been shown to have its own positive effect on energy usage and emissions as a result. I think there is a substantial market for this 100kwh Tesla power block in off grid resorts.
But I am seeing even residential family houses in Canada with PV arrays of 12 kw on the roof.
Yes the interconnection breakers supplied by Duke turned out to be the wrong size (to weak), so they had to wait for replacements. Of course this is just a a rumor from one of the student participants and Duke refused to confirm, funny how that works out, isn’t it.
The American Renewable Energy Institute (AREI) brings together thought leaders and experts to foster climate change solutions. By Peter Schorsch, Phil Ammann, Jenna Buzzacco-Foerster, Mitch Perry, Ryan Ray and Jim Rosica. Gancarski, Jenna Buzzacco-Foerster, Scott Powers, Ryan Ray, Melissa Ross, Bill Rufty, and Andrew Wilson. Such utility projects historically have been financed by banks and Wall Street, with the risks borne by Duke and FPL shareholders, not by ratepayers. Similar claims are made in the suit against FPL, Florida's largest utility, for expenses tied to its nuclear power plants, including two new ones proposed at its Turkey Point site in South Florida.
It also seeks to nullify as unconstitutional the nuclear cost recovery system and all nuclear cost recovery orders issued by the PSC. One is Clearwater resident and Duke Energy Florida customer Bill Newton, who serves as deputy director of the Florida Consumer Action Network.
Displayed on the USFSP campus is the high-resolution data collected on the PV installation.

At the same time, operating in conjunction with two smaller, existing USF energy storage systems, a growing system evolves. As with other battery storage projects at Duke Energy, there is performance monitoring of these systems to learn more about combining intermittent energy resources with storage.
DAY 2 OF RICK SCOTT'S EDUCATION SUMMIT Gov. Rick Scott has a few suggestions to make it easier for Florida students to graduate from college in four years. It accuses Duke Energy Florida and FPL of overcharging through unconstitutional price hikes that increase customers' electricity bills in order to fund nuclear construction costs. He recently represented 20 million class members against Toyota for its sudden unintended acceleration defect and subsequent economic loss to vehicle owners. The other is Naples resident and FPL customer Noreen Allison, a retired worker with the U.S. A solar battery project is bringing together Duke Energy Florida and the University of South Florida, St. Some much larger flow batteries come very close in the lifetime per-kWh price if you estimate a 30-year life and unlimited cycling for them. Department of Energy to install 36-megawatt (MW) large-scale batteries capable of storing electricity produced by its 153-MW Notrees wind farm. A freestanding canopy of solar panels of this size with space beneath for parking can produce enough energy to power an electric car for half a million miles. But note that the warranty period for the Imergy batteries is just 5–10 years, despite claims of unlimited cycling and long life.
And I am giving some thought to just buying a 100 kwh Tesla powerblock for storage, since I am off grid. These prices might sound daunting if you are grid connected, but if you are off grid the prices sound like a bargain compared to what you would have paid even 5 years ago.
