FPL wants another runclear plant at Turkey Point

Eye on Miami revealed yesterday that FPL wants to build another nuclear "plant" at Turkey Point in South Miami-Dade.

In a "friendly neighbor letter" supplied to Eye on Miami, FPL says that:
Today, we are are taking steps that will give us the option to construct another nuclear power plant in the future. We have selected our existing Turkey Point property, where we have safely operated two nuclear reactors for nearly 35 years, as a potential location for the additional nuclear power plant.
But, while the letter says it is an "option" an accompanying brochure published by Eye on Miami shows that they're actually talking TWO new nuclear reactors and that it's virtually a done deal!
