FPL强烈要求美国政府关注提议的洁净燃煤发电厂事实

2007年05月19日 09:54:00 中国传动网

美国佛罗里达州JUNO BEACH市新闻――佛罗里达州电力和照明公司(Florida Power & Light Company)坚信当我们向尊贵的客户和政府立法者提议建立一个先进的洁净煤技术发电厂的时候,他们应该相信事实,而不是花言巧语,这个建议与今天一些环保组织的建议相反。加拉兹县发电厂对环境影响很敏感,而且,未来将为客户带来经济效益,确保其能源安全。 我们提供了一个平衡的方法,这个方法建立在我们的信誉:倡导节能,寻找一种可靠而经济的能源,以及我们建立国内最洁净燃煤电厂的允诺之上。 加拉兹县发电厂比以往的发电厂燃烧更少的煤而生产更多的电力,因为我们的工程师将采用最先进的科技。事实上,该发电厂的发电效率将比美国现存的燃煤发电厂发电效率高23%。 控制污染是首要的,FPL提议建立一个洁净煤发电厂其汞排放量将比美国环境保护局制定的严格的新联邦标准低50%,在加拉兹县建立先进的洁净煤技术发电厂的汞排放量将比其他技术建立的电厂汞排放量低1/100th,总之,检测现存如此少量的汞并非易事。 我们满足客户对能源需求和环境敏感性的努力没有在此停止,这是为何能源部门在FPL提出节能建议时被评为国内领先的组织,总要的是,FPL的客户占美国总人口的3%,然而FPL在美国电力行业却提供13%的电力供应,FPL及其尊贵的客户非常注重能源的节约,因此在过去25年内减少建立11个发电厂,并且,通过使用节能方案,FPL预计将在2006年到2015年间降低26%的能源需求。 一些环保论者还将FPL的节能和负担能力与加利福尼亚州太平洋煤气电力公司(PGE)相比较,这是很不适宜的。他们遗漏了一些事实,FPL的客户比其他任何一个加州机构都节约能多的能源,此外,我们的客户比加州市民使用价格更低的电,例如,一户典型的FPL居民使用1000 kWh电量仅花费$108.61,而加州PGE的客户使用同样的电量需要花费$193.85。 但是对于一个像佛罗里达州一样快速发展的州来说节能和可再生能源供应是完全不够的, FPL平均每年新增90000个客户账号,现在居民客户平均用电比20年前增加了30%。 洁净煤帮助满足这种能源要求,否则,FPL未来70%的电力都将依赖天然气,这是一种挥发性较强的燃料资源,此外,墨西哥湾发生飓风会影响天然气供应。 最后,FPL集团,FPL的总公司,是“美国气候行动合作伙伴”的一个创始成员之一,“美国气候行动合作伙伴”是美国主要的商务和领先的环保组织号召采取迅速行动降低温室气体排放的联盟。 佛罗里达州电力和照明公司是FPL集团公司的主要下属子公司,以高质量,高效率和客户至上而享誉全国,专业提供能源相关的产品和服务,年收入近160亿美元,在美国26个州都设有分公司。FPL集团被普遍认为是美国最主要的电力公司,佛罗里达州电力和照明公司为佛罗里达州440万市民提供电力,FPL计软较有竞争力的子公司FPL Energy和LLC是利用洁净可再生燃料发电的领先企业。更多信息登录网站:www.FPL.com, www.FPLGroup.com, www.FPLEnergy.com。 original text: [COLOR=#708090]FPL Urges State to Look at Facts Regarding Its Proposed Clean Coal Plant JUNO BEACH, Fla.——(BUSINESS WIRE)——Florida Power & Light Company (NYSE:FPL) strongly believes our valued customers and our state lawmakers deserve facts, not rhetoric, when it comes to our proposal for an advanced clean coal technology power plant. Contrary to what some environmental organizations suggest today, the FPL Glades Power Park will be environmentally-sensitive and will offer customers pocketbook and energy security for the future. Our approach is a balanced one, built on our reputation for energy conservation, the search for reliable and affordable energy supplies, and our promise to build one of the cleanest coal plants in the country. The FPL Glades Power Park will use less coal to produce more energy than the plants of yesterday, because our engineers will be using state of the art technology. In fact, the FPL Glades Power Park will be 23 percent more efficient than the average existing U.S. coal plant. Pollution control is a top priority. FPL‘s proposed clean coal plant will result in mercury emissions 50 percent below strict new federal standards mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency. The mercury in Glades County attributable to the proposed advanced technology coal power plant would be considerably less than one/one-hundredth (1/100th) of the mercury attributable to other sources. In summary, it would be impossible to detect the addition of such a small amount of mercury to what is already there. Our efforts to meet our customers‘ energy demands and environmental sensitivity don‘t stop there. That‘s why the Department of Energy has recognized FPL as the nation‘s leading utility when it comes to energy conservation. It‘s important to note, FPL customers represent about three percent of the U.S. population, yet FPL has delivered 13 percent of the utility industry‘s conservation efforts. FPL and its valued customers have embraced conservation so much that the effort has avoided the need for building 11 power plants over the past quarter-century. Also, FPL will use energy conservation programs to off-set about 26 percent of the expected growth in demand between 2006 and 2015. Some environmentalists tried to unfavorably compare FPL energy efficiency and affordability with California‘s Pacific Gas & Electric. Here are a few facts they left out. FPL‘s customers conserve more energy than any one California utility. In addition, our customers pay less for their electricity than residents in California. For example, a typical FPL residential bill costs $108.61 for 1000 kilowatt-hours (kWh). A PGE customer in California would pay $193.85 for the same amount of electricity. Energy conservation and renewable energy supplies are simply not enough, though, for a state growing as rapidly as Florida. On average, FPL is adding 90,000 new customer accounts every year. Residential customers on average use 30 percent more electricity now than they did 20 years ago. Clean coal helps meet that energy demand. Without it FPL would, in the near future, have to rely on natural gas for more than 70 percent of its energy production, a fuel source that has seen much volatility in recent years. In addition, natural gas supplies can be jeopardized whenever a hurricane roars through the Gulf of Mexico. Finally, FPL Group, FPL‘s parent company, is a founding member of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, an alliance of major American businesses and leading environmental groups calling for swift federal action to reduce greenhouse gases. Indeed, if all utilities had FPL Group‘s CO2 emissions rate profile, the U.S. would already meet the Kyoto Protocol‘s targets for reducing greenhouse gases. Florida Power & Light Company is the principal subsidiary of FPL Group, Inc. (NYSE:FPL), nationally known as a high quality, efficient and customer-driven organization focused on energy-related products and services. With annual revenues of nearly $16 billion and a growing presence in 26 states, FPL Group is widely recognized as one of the country‘s premier power companies. Florida Power & Light Company serves 4.4 million customer accounts in Florida. FPL Energy, LLC, FPL Group‘s competitive energy subsidiary, is a leader in producing electricity from clean and renewable fuels.
