PROGRESS ENERGY FLORIDA - President/CEO - St. Petersburg

“If you contemplate a future world where we are going to put a premium on reduction of emissions, in particular carbon emission, nuclear is the only carbon-free source of electricity of the ones that are out there today. In particular, Florida needs to be sensitive to fuel diversity. Having the variety of fuels gives you a hedge against one of those fuels moving up and down.”
