The hearing allows FPL and the intervenors to present sworn testimony and exhibits in support of their positions. The hearing was originally scheduled for nine days and began on August 24, 2009. Due to the extensive testimony and cross-examination process, the hearing requires more time than initially scheduled.

Wednesday, September 16 – Thursday, September 17, 2009
9:30 a.m.
Betty Easley Conference Center
Joseph P. Cresse Hearing Room (Room 148)
