Section 403.506, Florida Statutes 2007

403.506  Applicability, thresholds, and certification.--

(1)  The provisions of this act shall apply to any electrical power plant as defined herein, except that the provisions of this act shall not apply to any electrical power plant or steam generating plant of less than 75 megawatts in capacity or to any substation to be constructed as part of an associated transmission line unless the applicant has elected to apply for certification of such plant or substation under this act. The provisions of this act shall not apply to any unit capacity expansion of 35 megawatts or less of an existing exothermic reaction cogeneration unit that was exempt from this act when it was originally built; however, this exemption shall not apply if the unit uses oil or natural gas for purposes other than unit startup. No construction of any new electrical power plant or expansion in steam generating capacity as measured by an increase in the maximum electrical generator rating of any existing electrical power plant may be undertaken after October 1, 1973, without first obtaining certification in the manner as herein provided, except that this act shall not apply to any such electrical power plant which is presently operating or under construction or which has, upon the effective date of chapter 73-33, Laws of Florida, applied for a permit or certification under requirements in force prior to the effective date of such act.

(2)  Except as provided in the certification, modification of nonnuclear fuels, internal related hardware, including increases in steam turbine efficiency, or operating conditions not in conflict with certification which increase the electrical output of a unit to no greater capacity than the maximum electrical generator rating of the existing generator shall not constitute an alteration or addition to generating capacity which requires certification pursuant to this act.
