FPL announces plans for 300-mile, $1.5 billion gas pipeline

MIAMI, Fla. – FPL, Florida's largest utility, is planning a 300-mile natural gas pipeline.
The $1.5 billion pipeline will stretch from eastern Palm Beach County to Bradford County, west of St. Augustine.
Natural gas supplies 53 percent of the utility's energy. FPL says the underground pipeline would "increase the supply of clean natural gas to meet planned needs."
Construction won't begin until after a government approval process. It could be completed by 2014.
FPL spokeswoman Jackie Anderson said the project won't affect customers' bills.
TECO Energy also plans a new pipeline.
