UPDATE ON FPL NUCLEAR PLANTS
Issued: Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 3:30 p.m.
Beginning early Saturday morning, we conservatively and safely shut down one of Turkey Point’s two nuclear reactors. As Irma’s path changed, the decision was made to leave the second reactor online, as hurricane force winds were no longer expected at the site. We will adjust this plan, if needed, subject to weather conditions.
At this time, it is not expected that the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant will shut down as a result of Irma, though we will closely monitor the changing weather conditions.
Safety is and will remain our top priority.
