At the encouragement of their leaders and their newspaper, “Indian River Shores 32963,” many Shores residents recently wrote the Florida Public Service Commission urging the PSC to grant the Town’s petition to be reassigned from Vero Electric to Florida Power & Light.
Though the PSC preliminarily denied the Town’s petition, and reversal of that position at the Commission Oct. 3 meeting could cost the remaining customers of Vero Electric an average of $566. Shores leaders proposed to force Vero Beach to accept FPL’s $30 million offer, though a team of five utility experts calculated it will take $47 million to carve off Vero Electric’s Shores customer base without leaving the remaining customer paying higher rates.
To prevent the Shores from pulling off a $17 million heist at the expense of the remaining customer of Vero Electric, Vero Beach residents, and customers of Vero Electric outside the Shores, can write the Florida Public Service Commission to express support for the Commission’s preliminary 4-1 of last Tuesday.
