1.	St. Johns River Plant
	The St. Johns River Power 
	Park (SJRPP) uses coal and 
	petroleum coke in two large 
	steam units to produce more 
	than 1260 MW of electricity, 
	half of which is used by JEA. 
	The other half is used by 
	Florida Power & Light 
	Company, which is co-owner, 
	with JEA, of the facility . 	
	SJRPP was placed in service 
	in 1987 and was built with 
	state-of-the-art mission 
	control equipment so that 
	even today, SJRPP performs 
	as well as or better than all 
	federal, state and local 
	environmental standards.

2.	Kennedy Generating Station
	Uses natural gas and 
	oil in one large combustion 
	turbine and three small, 
	peaking units to produce 
	335 MW of electricity. Power 
	for Jacksonville has been 
	produced at the KGS site 
	since 1912. Of course, the 	
	units in service today are 
	not nearly that old. In 
	fact, the largest unit was 
	installed in 2000 and 
	is identical to the BBGS 

2.	Northside
	The Northside Generating Station 
	(NGS) uses natural gas, fuel oil, 
	coal and petroleum coke in three, 
	large steam units and four small, 
	diesel-powered peaking units to 
	produce more than 1270 MW of 
	electricity. NGS boasts the two 
	largest Circulating Fluidized 
	Bed Combustors (CFBs) in the world. 
	NGS is also among the cleanest 
	solid fuel plants in the world. 
	NGS was placed into service in 
	1966, but Unit 3, the oldest 
	operating unit, was completed 
	in 1977.

3.	Brandy Branch Generating Station
	The Brandy Branch Generating 
	Station (BBGS) uses natural gas 
	(or oil in emergencies) in three 
	large, combustion turbines to 
	produce more than 540 MW of 
	Environmentally, BBGS is one of 
	the cleanest power plants in the 
	world. The station was completed 
	in 2001, with a planned expansion 
	to be completed in 2004.

1.	Big Bend
	Big Bend Station has four 
	coal-fired units with a 
	combined output of more 
	than 1,800 megawatts. Big 
	Bend Station expanded to meet 
	the demands of rapid growth 
	during the 1970s and 1980s. 
	The first unit began service 
	in 1970; the second and 
	third generating units were 
	added in 1973 and 1976; and 
	Unit Four was added in 1985. 
	With the capacity provided by 
	three combustion turbines that 
	serve as peaking units, 
	combined output from Big Bend 
	Station is 2,000 megawatts.

2.	Bay Side
	Located on Port Sutton Road 
	near Tampa Bay, the 1,200-
	megawatt Gannon Station will 
	soon convert from coal to 
	natural gas. The repowered 
	plant will be renamed Bayside 
	Station and by 2004 will 
	provide approximately 1,800 
	megawatts of natural gas-fueled 
	electric energy.

3.	Polk Power Plant
	A state-of-the-art integrated coal 
	gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) 
	power plant, Tampa Electricís Polk 
	Power Station produces enough 
	electricity to serve 75,000 homes

1.	HC Corn
	The C. H. Corn facility is a 
	hydroelectric generating plant 
	located 20 miles southwest of 
	Tallahassee, on Lake Talquin. 
	This plant is one of only two 
	hydroelectric plants in the 
	state of Florida. 

2.	Purdon Unit 8
	Purdom Unit 8 generates 250 
	megawatts of power for the 
	same fuel as other 
	generators use to generate 160 
	megawatts. The generator is 
	40% more efficient than other

2.	Gainesville Regional Utilities
	The Deerhaven Generating Station 
	is GRU's largest power plant. 
	Deerhaven began commercial 
	operation in 1972 with Unit 
	One, an 82-megawatt natural 
	gas or oil fired generating 
	unit. One year later, GRU 
	negotiated a permanent tie 
	into the state electric grid 	
	through the Florida Power 
	Corporation, which allows us 
	to buy and sell excess power. 
	In 1981, Unit Two was 
	constructed becoming the 
	first municipally owned coal 
	burning electric generating 
	unit in the state. 
	Unit Two is a 235-megawatt 
	generating unit. Natural Gas
