FPL uses its energy savings expertise to build programs that help businesses reduce energy costs. Our free Business On Call® Program is an easy way for you to earn savings on electricity.
By signing up, you agree to let FPL occasionally turn off your air conditioning system for short periods of time when absolutely necessary. In return, you get a monthly credit on your bill even if Business On Call® is not activated.
- Duration: The program runs from April - October, when demand for electricity is high. During this period, your A/C may cycle off one time for 15 to 17.5 minutes per thirty-minute period for no more than a 6 hour time period.
- Eligibility: Your A/C must normally operate between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., at least four days per week. If you have several units, all will be cycled except those units dedicated to temperature-sensitive equipment.
- Expectation: Chances are your customers and employees won't even notice a difference in comfort. All other electrical devices in your business will continue to operate normally.
- Savings: You will receive a credit on your FPL electric bill for each of the seven months that the program is in effect. Your savings will be $2 per ton, per month over the seven-month period that your A/C is On Call®. For example, if you have a five-ton A/C unit, you will save a total of $70 (i.e., 5 tons x $2 = $10 per month; $10 x 7 months = $70).
Historically, Business On Call® has been activated three to four times per year between April and October when energy demand and usage is highest. But since your A/C usually cycles on and off, the only difference you'll notice will be a reduced electricity bill.
