FL PSC says 'clean energy' should include nukes, coal

The Miami Herald reports today that she staff of the state's Public Service Commission has recommended redefining renewable energy to include nuclear and clean coal.

Such a redefinition would make it easier for FPL and other electric utilities to comply with a goal set by Gov. Charlie Crist of having 20 percent of all electrical power come from renewable energy by 2020.

Environmentalists are opposed to the redefinition, while FPL immediately expressed its support for the PSC staff recommendation.
