Total amount due to FPL. Since we read your meter and bill you after you have used the service, it is due now.
However, we give 21 days before it becomes past due.
You also have the option of having your bills paid automatically through FPL Automatic Bill Pay.
Latest date we can receive payment for new charges. If you have a previous balance on the account, please pay it immediately to avoid possible collection charges or other action.
Dates for this billing period. Please note that the number of days in a billing period may fluctuate due to
-other changes in the read date
This may cause the total bill to change by as much as 20%, even when the usage per day remains the same. We also show the next scheduled read date, though that date may change.
Why has the date changed significantly? We still have people reading meters monthly. Periodically, we may change the sequence in which meters are read to better balance workload and help keep costs low. This may result in what we call rerouting and could mean more or fewer days between readings. This will not increase the overall amount you pay since you are still only billed for what you use for that period.

New charges for this billing period that are detailed in the account activity section (see section 20).
This section shows the meter reading for the current and last bill. You may check this by reading your own meter. The reading you take will include any electricity you have used since we read your meter.
The energy usage includes the kilowatt-hours (kwh) you used this month and those used last year for the same period. A variety of things may affect energy usage, such as weather conditions or changes made to your home.
For example, hotter weather causes your air conditioner to run more often. Therefore, the hotter it is outside the more it costs to keep cool inside. We recommend setting the thermostat no lower than 78 degrees for cooling.
When weather turns cold, more heat is required to maintain your indoor comfort level as the outdoor temperature drops. In this situation, we recommend setting the thermostat no higher than 68 degrees for heating. In some instances, electric heat can cost up to three times as much to operate as air conditioning.
Charges included in the electric service amount.
Customer Charge - This is a set amount per month, regardless of how much electricity is used, to cover the costs of your service and meter, including installation and the administrative costs related to servicing your account.
FPL's efforts to keep costs down have resulted in no change to this charge for more than 10 years.
Non-Fuel Energy Charge - The charge per kilowatt-hour (kwh) of electric service, excluding fuel to cover the costs of
-meeting environmental laws and regulations and
-energy conservation measures.
Fuel Charge - The charge per kwh to cover the cost of fuel required to produce and deliver electricity. This cost is passed on to the customer with no profit to FPL. These costs fluctuate, based on market conditions, and are adjusted annually, or more frequently if prices change by at least 10 percent.
