TALLASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Your electricity bill will be going up slightly in January 2021.

On Tuesday, the state’s Public Service Commission approved a series of costs, like power plant fuel, that will be passed along by the utility. Those costs are revised each year and passed through to customers.

FPL residential customers who use 1,000-kilowatt hours of electricity a month will see their bills go from $96.43 to $99.05, according to information released Wednesday by the Public Service Commission.

Utilities commonly use 1,000-kilowatt hour bills as a benchmark, but actual electricity consumption varies widely.

Also on Tuesday, Tampa Electric Co. announced that its residential customers who use 1,000-kilowatt hours of electricity a month will see bills go from $97.69 to $105.25 in January. Tampa Electric primarily cited higher costs for natural gas.
