A $130,000 penalty was paid by Florida Power and Light; and "A federal investigation found that six guards at FPL's Turkey Point nuclear plant slept or served as lookouts for other sleeping guards between 2004 and 2006." AP reports the fine and circumstances here, via the Florida Sun Sentinel. Not the kind of headline desired by the industry that hopes to save the world from a climate catastrophe. Investor tip of the day: so far, no guards needed at wind farms.Additional nuclear power posts.
