The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will continue an evidentiary hearing on Florida Power & Light Company’s (FPL) request for a rate increase beginning Wednesday, October 21, 2009 and continuing through Friday, October 23, 2009, if necessary. The hearing allows FPL and the intervenors to present sworn testimony and exhibits in support of their positions. The hearing was originally scheduled for nine days and began on August 24, 2009. Due to the extensive testimony and cross-examination process, the hearing requires more time than initially scheduled.
The additional hearing dates are set for the following time and location:
Wednesday, October 21 – Friday, October 23, 2009
Betty Easley Conference Center
Joseph P. Cresse Hearing Room (Room 148)
4075 Esplanade Way
