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.

Estimated total base rate increase to be phased in 2017-2020:



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.

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 impact estimates are based on FPL’s base rate proposal filed with the Florida Public Service Commission (Docket No. 160021-EI). All rates are subject to change, and all numbers provided are estimates until new base rates are determined by the PSC. New base rates would be phased in January 2017, January 2018 and mid-2019. Calculations include the state's standard gross receipts tax but do not include any local taxes or fees that vary by community.

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.
