Project Costs

FPL will need additional fuel to generate power for customers by 2017, and the new pipelines are the most cost-effective method to provide that fuel. FPL’s economic analysis showed that these projects will save FPL customers nearly $600 million compared with the next closest proposal.

FPL customers will not be directly paying to construct the two pipelines, and customers won’t begin to pay any costs associated with the new pipelines until they actually enter service, which is anticipated to be 2017. If approved by the Public Service Commission, FPL will purchase fuel transportation capacity from the pipelines when they enter service in 2017 and recover the cost through the Fuel Clause on a customer’s bill, just as it currently does with the two existing pipelines that serve its system.
