FPL seeks additional rate increase – wants PSC permission to hike customer service charge 27 percent

“The utility estimates that a typical residential bill of 1,000 kilowatt hours would rise from $91.84 per month to $100.66 per month next year, including all charges and fees, according to FPL materials. That typical rate would eventually rise to $105.31 in 2019 at the conclusion of the increases.” Sarasota Herald-Tribune, June 3, 2016


The Press Journal has yet to inform its readers on Florida Power & Light’s proposed $1.3 billion rate increase. Meanwhile, other news organizations across the state have stepped up their reporting on the utility giant’s plans. Below are links to stories published recently by Florida Today, the Palm Beach Post and the Miami Herald.
