Who Are Our Customers?

At NextEra Energy, we serve a variety of customers.

At FPL, we are a rate-regulated electric utility and we operate as a vertically integrated company - that is, we generate, transmit and distribute electricity and handle related services like customer service, billing and many others. We serve more than 4.8 million customer accounts in the state of Florida including residential accounts, businesses small and large, and a variety of other organizations such as government entities and nonprofit organizations.

At NextEra Energy Resources, we operate primarily as a wholesale power generator, providing power and environmental attributes to utilities, retail electricity providers, power cooperatives, municipal electric providers and large industrial companies.

As new power generation facilities become operational, they must be connected to the customers that need electricity. NextEra Energy Transmission is pursuing opportunities to develop, build and operate new transmission facilities in Ontario (Canada), Hawaii, New England, New York, California and Texas.

The customers of all of these businesses have one thing in common - the desire for affordable and reliable power. And that's what we strive to deliver, every day.
