TALLAHASSEE (CBS4) – Florida Power and Light has asked the state’s Public Service Commission to approve a new plan that would allow customers to lower their bills if they participate in conservation programs.

Both FPL and Progress Energy Florida have submitted revised plans to the PSC which will vote on them Tuesday. Each would slightly increase overall rates but give customers a chance to reduce their power bills by taking some energy saving measures.  They include home energy surveys and incentives for installing more efficient air conditioning systems and appliances.

The commission rejected earlier proposals from the utilities because they failed to meet conservation goals set by the panel.
