Investing in Florida’s Future
FPL’s 2017-2020 Base Rate Plan
While energy use varies by customer, we estimate that the typical, 1,000-kWh bill will see a base rate increase of about 44 cents a day by 2020.
More than half of FPL’s customers use less than 1,000-kWh of electricity each month.
FPL's proposal includes three base rate adjustments that would be phased in during the four-year period (2017-2020). However, even with the total proposed base rate increase, FPL expects that its typical bill in 2020 will still be lower than it was in 2006.
2006 vs. 2020 Monthly Bill
Base Rate Changes by Year
The increase would be phased in over four years to support investments that will further improve your service reliability, help us restore power faster, and make our system even more efficient. We expect the typical customer bill to remain lower than 2006 levels from 2017 through 2020, even with the proposed rate adjustment.
Base rate plan details
Our four-year proposal will support continued investments that benefit customers while keeping bills lower than they were in 2006 through at least 2020. Based on current projections for fuel and other costs, we estimate that the total typical customer bill will grow at roughly the rate of inflation from now through 2020.
