At FPL, we’re committed to delivering energy that is cleaner and more reliable than ever before while keeping bills low.
While the cost of everyday items has gone up in recent years, FPL bills are actually lower today than they were 10 years ago. FPL's typical 1,000-kWh residential customer bill is approximately 25 percent below the national average and, in 2016, was the lowest in Florida among reporting utilities for the seventh year in a row.
How do we do it? We’re making smart investments on behalf of our customers that continue to deliver improved service at a lower cost.
We’ve torn down old, oil-fired power plants and replaced them with modern energy centers powered by clean, U.S.-produced natural gas. Since 2001, our investments in more efficient power plants have saved customers more than $8.6 billion by using less fuel to generate electricity.
In 2016 alone, nearly 64 million tons of CO2 were avoided thanks to NextEra Energy's emissions-free wind, solar and nuclear power generation. And in 2016, we tripled our solar capacity with three new universal solar plants powered by the sun.
A Stronger, Smarter Grid
Our electric grid is the most advanced in the country, more responsive, reliable and efficient than ever before. FPL’s investments in smart technology and reliability improvements help us detect, prevent and mitigate power interruptions for customers, helping to keep your lights on in good weather and bad.
Cleaner, more reliable service while keeping bills low is a direct result of the smart investments we’ve made on behalf of our customers.
