FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT 8 A.M. UPDATE

 MIAMI, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida Power & Light Co. is issuing the following update to keep customers informed about the utility's generation capacity this morning. The company also is updating its restoration of service that was disrupted by high winds from this weekend's cold front.
 FPL SYSTEM CAPACITY
 -- Thanks to special conservation efforts by customers this morning, FPL has adequate generating capacity to meet customers' needs. It is not necessary for the utility to implement rotating blackouts today.
 -- Peak demand of 12,884 megawatts occurred this morning between 7 an 8 a.m. Demand is leveling off as temperatures rise. Based on a continuing warming trend, FPL expects to have adequate generating capacity.
 -- FPL expects to discontinue its pre-arranged load control of participating residential and business customers at 9 a.m. today. Load control began at 6 a.m.
 RESTORATION
 -- FPL has restored service to all but 45,000 homes and businesses systemwide. The utility serves 3.3 million customer accounts. Restoration is complete in Dade County. By noon today, FPL will complete restoration in Broward County and along the Gulf Coast from Manatee County to Monroe County. Palm Beach County is scheduled to be completed by nightfall. Scattered outages remain from Brevard County to the Georgia border, and the company is assessing when it expects to complete restoration in those areas.
 -- FPL has 1,650 utility and contract crew members working on restoration systemwide. FPL is sending crews from restored locations to north Florida's heavily damaged areas.
