FPL's Commitment to Quality
The evolution of FPL's quality practices began in 1981, prompted by a need to reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction.
FPL has shown that quality practices are meeting these needs. Impressive results include:
- in 2002, for the second consecutive time, cited as No. 1 among leading utilities in environmental performance by Innovest, an investment research firm.
- in 2000, honored with the Edison Electric Institute's Emergency Response Award for outstanding efforts to restore service to customers in the wake of natural disasters, such as Hurricane Irene in October 1999.
- in 1999, delivering electricity at real prices 10 percent less than in 1984, with increased reliability and record levels of power plant availability.
- in 1992, restoring power to the over 1.7 million customers who were affected by Hurricane Andrew. FPL's successful performance provided dramatic improvements in satisfaction ratings by its customers.
