Starting in January, 2022 FPL residential customers will see the change as part of a new four-year, $1.53 billion rate increase approved this week (10/26/21) by Florida’s utility regulators.
The Florida Public Service Commission, regulates utilities in the state including electricity, telecommunications and water, unanimously voted to accept the increase, cementing a settlement agreement FPL reached in August with several consumer groups.
Starting in January 2022, FPL residential customers will start getting a higher monthly bill, with additional increases expected over the next four years.
The company estimates that a residential customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a month will see these monthly increases:
2023: An Additional: $1.67
2024: An Additional: 53 cents
2025: An Additional: 97 cents
The company estimates that a residential customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a month, would mean your bill will be $15.32 more by 2026 than it is now.
These estimates include Florida’s gross receipt tax and excludes credits, fees or local taxes that may be added depending on where the customer lives.
