"we need to diversify the mixture that makes up our fuel costs, if there is wind energy opportunities; hydro, iam really more thinking solid fuels, i think of coal, petroleum, coke catalyst, petcoke they call it, those kinds of things are i think where we need to be going. i think cleco is going there if we get our things worked out with them and thats part of our plan, iam confident those things are going to happen, we're gonna see a less dependent alexandria on natural gas and thats where we need to go."
