The two-phase pipeline would extend close to 600 miles from Alabama through Georgia to Martin County. It would serve FPL’s new plants under construction in Riviera Beach and Hollywood, as well as natural gas users.
The northern 465 miles, Sabal Trail Transmission, is a joint venture of subsidiaries of Houston-based Spectra Energy and FPL’s parent company, NextEra Energy. FPL plans to build the southern 126-mile Florida Southeast Connection.
