“In order to meet the growing demand for electricity, we’re going to need all the arrows in the quiver — natural gas, clean coal, alternative energy, energy efficiency and nuclear power. Nuclear power plants are among the safest and most secure facilities in the United States. Nuclear power is clean, zero emissions. It’s cost-effective; it’s reliable; and it’s a great economic development engine. We did acquire some land in Escambia County that could be the site of a generating plant.”
