While the exact figure is a moving target, spending on the proposed Levy County nuclear plant is in the neighborhood of $1 billion.

According to a report by the Florida Public Service Commission Office of Auditing and Performance, Duke had spent approximately $962 million on the project through Dec. 31, 2012, though company figures are different.

“We have invested about $771 million in capital on the Levy project through June 2013,” said Duke Energy spokesperson Heather Danenhower. “In the first six months of this year, we have spent approximately $59 million — $46 million capital and $13 million carrying cost.”

The company now seeks to recover another $106 million for costs incurred or expected for the project this year.
