FPL Raising Rates Next Month
Get Breaking News First
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – Get ready to pay more to turn on the lights and the air conditioning in the new year.
Beginning in January, customers of Florida Power and Light will see their monthly residential bills go up by about $5, on average.
A typical customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours a month would see their bill go from $95.20 a month to $99.95 a month.
FPL has roughly 4.6 million customers in the state.
One of the main reasons for the rate change is an increase in how much the utility pays for fuel. Fuel charges are passed on directly to consumers with no mark up.
