Florida Power and Light told state regulators Tuesday it would save customers money by purchasing a Jacksonville coal-fired power plant.

The state Public Service Commission is weighing whether to approve the purchase.

Florida Power and Light serves more than 100,000 customers in Nassau and St. Johns Counties. The company says it can save them and all of its ratepayers $70 million by not buying power from a coal-fired plant in Jacksonville.
