OFFICIAL FLORIDA ELECTRICITY RATE NOTICE

WARNING

NOTICE OF PROPOSED ELECTRICITY RATE NOTICE:

HOLD ALL UTILITIES ACCOUNTABLE

Big Electric, including Florida Power & Light, are raising electric rates – once again, and again, and again on Florida’s Panhandle customers.

Monopoly FP&L is bleeding its customers dry to protect its massive profits.

In Florida and across our nation, the biggest driver of high electric bills is the skyrocketing price of natural gas, which has more than doubled over the past year. This is not by accident, the energy industry—including monopoly utilities like FP&L & FP&L’s parent company—knew that its plan to liquefy and export natural gas to more lucrative overseas markets would drive the price up here in the U.S.

FP&L is now using that higher price of gas to seek more rate hikes on its customers! This is in addition to already increasing rates over the past year by more than $1 billion and boosting customer bills by roughly 18 percent.

It gets even worse. This monopoly utility, which is protected from free market competition, intends to hit its customers with more than this fuel cost hikes, it’s also seeking rate increases to underwrite its storm protection plan, and reimburse its costs related to Hurricane Ian

In fact, FP&L has gamed the system so it can raise customer rates for practically anything, including higher interests rates, higher taxes on its profits, inflation, and even its own bad investments.

Why should Floridians, especially FP&L’s beleaguered Panhandle customers, be forced to pay through the nose for FP&L’s faulty decision making and bad business decisions?

%

78% of FP&L's energy generation is feuled by natural gas. We all pay for this decision via higher rates.
