The Florida Public Service Commission granted the petitions of Florida Power and Light and Progress Energy Florida for determination of need for their proposed nuclear power plants. The PSC later issued an order granting their related petitions filed under a law that allows recovery in rates of certain costs incurred prior to commercial operation of the plants. The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy now challenges that order, arguing that the costs at issue do not qualify for recovery under the law and that the law is unconstitutional.
