Fpsc role in electric capacity and fuel emergencies

FPSC Role in Electric Capacity and Fuel Emergencies

  • Authority to maintain a reliable and coordinated grid for operational “as well as emergency purposes.” 366.04(2)(c), Florida Statutes.

  • Two Response Plans Under FPSC Rules

    • Generating Capacity Shortage (25-6.0183, Florida Administrative Code)

    • Fuel Emergency Plans (25-6.0185, Florida Administrative Code)


Generating capacity shortage plan

Generating Capacity Shortage Plan

  • 4 Levels of Action

    • Generating Capacity Advisory is established based on:

      • Weather

      • Individual utility is issuing conservation appeal

      • Potential disruption of gas pipeline

    • Generating Capacity Alert exists when:

      • The FRCC reserve capacity operating margin falls below the largest generator.

      • Gas pipeline interruption

    • Generating Capacity Emergency exists when:

      • One or more utility cannot meet its obligation to serve firm load

      • Controlled load interruption to maintain grid reliability and safety

    • System Load Restoration


Fuel emergency plans

Fuel Emergency Plans

  • Utilities develop specific fuel interruption plans

  • FPSC approves initial plan and any subsequent revisions

  • Plans address options such as off system purchases, fuel sharing, and priorities for customer interruptions
