Not sure what POE Plus is but ePoe or Enhanced POE on the 6500 allow the delivery of > 15W to each port. Actually it can deliver between 15.4W and 20W to each port. Have a look at this link for more details -


I would have thought that the 8700W power supplies would certainly be enough but if you have a CCO login you can use the Cisco power calculator to check this sort of thing -
