FPL officials say retiring and replacing the Lauderdale facility would save customers in excess of $300 million. Over the summer, regulators allowed FPL to skip a request for proposals that would have determined if a larger gas plant was the most cost-effective solution. According to the utility, constructing Dania Beach Unit 7 would be about $1.3 billion cheaper than constructing an equivalent amount of solar generation.
The Presque Isle saga continues years after WEC's 2013 attempt to shutter the plant. The Midcontinent ISO has determined the plant is needed for reliability despite WEC's attempts to shutter it in 2013, leading to the current dispute that spans nearly 20 dockets, Midwest Energy News noted. Last year, FERC determined system support resource (SSR) costs must be allocated to the load-serving entities that require the plant to continue operating.
Regulators say the new rules are a "major victory" for the public, helping to ensure customers know what they are purchasing and how it will impact their bills. In addition to standardizing contract requirements and requiring a Uniform Disclosure Statement for all retail electric supplier solicitations, the new rules require suppliers to disclose whether rates will vary over time or are fixed. Suppliers also must disclose changes in rates to customers in advance.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
