FPL reports delay in solar plant construction

FPl has reported a delay in the start of construction of its Space Coast solar power plant, reported Florida Today newspaper.

FPL had intended the start building the $78.9 million 10-megawatt Space Coast Next Generation Solar Energy Center in late 2008, the paper reported, but a delay announced in October has been followed by a further delay of today's rescheduled groundbreaking.

Apparently to avoid conflict with NASA's launch schedule, the groundbreaking has now been reset for May 2009. Company officials could not say when the plant would become operational.
