City Opts for $10.1M Used Generator Over Repairing McIntosh Unit 2

Lakeland Electric General Manager Joel Ivy said the city would get “more bang for the buck” with the used turbine and its $26 million installation cost over repairing McIntosh Unit 2 or buying power from other utilities for peak demand times. The vote was 5-2, with Commissioners Dunn and Troller dissenting.
