Capacity Being Added at Florida's Hines

LCG, Mar. 28, 2002--The second phase of construction at Florida Power's Hines Energy Complex is beginning today, and will add a second gas-fired, combined-cycle plant.

The new plant will have a capacity of 495 megawatts, and is expected to start producing power in November 2003. "We serve a state with one of the highest growth rates in the country," commented Bill Habermeyer, president and CEO of Florida Power, the regulated utility. The original, 482-megawatt plant, Hines 1, started operations in 1999. The Hines Energy Complex is located in Polk County, Fla.

During the approval process of the combined-cycle generating units at Hines by the Florida Public Service Commission in 2000, a staffer suggested that Florida Power be allowed to recoup its capital and operating costs plus a given rate of return for the first five years of the project, rather than over a 30-year period.
