Hello I will be moving to Jacksonville in 2 weeks and just wanted to know if there was a plant of some sort in that area?

My fiance drives to and from work and he says although he likes Jacksonville he is already thinking about relocating us to Sarasota. Since I am not in the area is there anyone that cant give me some type of information on this..because we are both ignorant on this thanks in advance!

I think they are enriching uranium there (LOL).

Actually, I think you are referring to the JEA coal fired plant.

Sarasota is a very cool town BTW.

aka another reason to raise rates.

I stand corrected. All these years I thought it was coal fired. Ooops.

I heard a presentation about it at a CPAC meeting. Not nuclear. Sounded like a sales pitch to me. I wasn't sure what they were planning- but not nuclear for sure.

Yeah, the hour-glass shaped cooling towers are most often associated with nuclear plants (probably due to 3-mile island), but all sorts of plants use them.

I'm confussed. How is it we would want the George Bush nuclear powered aircraft carrier at Mayport but fear a Nuclear power plant?
More people have been killed in Teddy Kennedies car than by Nuclear power in the US.

Actually, if you're talking about the area north of the Dames Point Bridge, there are actually two power plants. One is the Northside Generating Station which is operated by JEA and it uses a mixture of coal and petroleum coke. The one that has the cooling towers that look like they're from a nuclear plant is the St. Johns River Power Park, which is co-owned by JEA and FPL. It is also a coal-fired plant. The two plants are less than a mile from each other.

The JEA plant that is operated using natural gas is the Brandy Branch station, which is in a different area.

Odds are that JEA will eventually build a nuclear power plant, but it won't be in Jacksonville.

that doesn't make much sense.
JEA is a municpal agency that services JAX, where would they build a new plant if not in JAX?
