PSC Customer Service Hearing Set for FPL Rate Request in Daytona Beach


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will conduct a customer service hearing on Tuesday, June 12, 2012, for customers of Florida Power & Light Company (FPL).  In March, FPL filed a petition with the PSC for an increase to its base rates.

As of January 2012, a 1,000 kwh monthly bill for residential customers is $94.62.  Using FPL’s proposed increase, a 1,000 kwh monthly bill for residential customers is estimated to be $95.19 in January 2013 and $96.03 in June 2013.  These charges include a base rate increase of $5.23 and $1.86 respectively, however, with an estimated reduction in fuel costs and other bill changes, the proposed net increase is $0.57 and $0.84, respectively.  FPL provides electric service to more than 4.5 million retail customers in all or parts of 35 Florida counties.

The hearing allows customers to comment on the proposed rates and any FPL quality-of-service issues.  Customers are invited to attend the hearing at the following time and location:
