George Cavros is clean energy attorney and advocate. He has worked on a range of state energy policy issues for over a decade, such as:
For over 30 years, FPL has run an industrial power complex at its Turkey Point Nuclear Plant site. FPL's flawed cooling canal system is now polluting groundwater and surface water in Biscayne Bay and beyond.
There has been inconsistent pressure on FPL and regulators to ensure a long-term solution to this unacceptable environmental situation that effectively protects the unique biodiversity and natural resources in Florida.
With your help we will build a case through the additional collection of data to gain a better understanding of the ongoing environmental damage in order to make FPL and regulators accountable.
