Bad news for those in Levy County who were counting on construction of a $17 billion nuclear plant near Inglis: the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has put a kink in construction plans and delayed the start by 20 months.
The good news is that customers will see lower bills for 2010 as Progress Energy, which has proposed building two nuclear generation units about 2 miles from Inglis. The company told the state Public Service Commission it would not need half as much money as previously planned for “cost-recovery” for the construction.
