A Florida law allowing utilities to recover from customers the cost of expanding nuclear plants before construction begins has served the state well and should be kept on the books, writes Paul Genoa, senior director of policy development at the Nuclear Energy Institute. Consumers benefit from the reduced financing costs, and the infrastructure expansion projects will help meet tomorrow's energy needs, he writes. "Nuclear energy has played a key role in providing a secure, diverse electricity portfolio, and will continue to benefit Florida for decades to come," Genoa writes.
