Charging costs vary depending on driving style, habits, temperature, and the efficiency rating of your vehicle, among other factors. However, the cost of driving an EV is just pennies per mile compared to gasoline, and FPL’s standard electric service rate is below the national average.
If you are considering purchasing an electric vehicle there are some factors to consider for choosing the best vehicle for you.
Electric vehicle range varies depending on the size of the battery, the type and weight of the car, road, and weather conditions, driving style, and ancillary usage, such as running the air conditioning or charging your cell phone. Please refer to your vehicle manual to determine how much range you have.

During the five-year pilot period, FPL will gather and evaluate the learnings gained from the research and will use it to inform the design of any proposed future EV rates. This may include extension of the existing pilot tariffs, converting the pilot tariffs to a permanent offering, allowing the pilot tariffs to expire, or replacing the tariffs with a different option.
Customers will receive a Level 2 charger, which can charge most EVs up to 12 times faster than a Level 1 charger. The chargers will be Wi-Fi enabled and suited for the needs of the customer. The chargers will also be ENERGY STAR® certified and UL Listed.
If you have the required 240-volt circuit, you may choose the equipment-only installation and we will provide the charging equipment, charger set up and hardwiring. If you do not have the required circuit, you would need to either have it installed or we may install it as part of a full installation.
There are two common household levels of electric vehicle (EV) charging – Level 1 and 2.
Customers will be able to choose from two different Level 2 EV chargers.
When calculating total monthly energy consumed and taking into account typical driving patterns, customers enrolled in FPL EVolution Home and using the provided FPL EVolution charging equipment will receive an average lower rate than customers not enrolled in the program, due to the decreased rate used for off-peak hours.
The FPL EVolution Home charging program is specific to the customer’s residence upon enrollment. If you move, you will need to terminate the agreement and re-enroll at your new residence. Because the equipment would require removal, early termination fees would apply.
No. Because FPL installs, owns and maintains the EV charging equipment in your home, you would not be eligible for the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit.
System installation may take approximately 4-6 weeks after enrollment and will be subject to timely completion of an installation survey, permit issuance times by your local building department as well as approval by your homeowner’s association (if required).
No. FPL EVolution Home was approved by the Florida Public Service Commission in 2021. The monthly program charge is designed so that only customers enrolled in FPL EVolution Home are paying for the program costs, including charging equipment, installation, technology, customer acquisition, operations and maintenance, and general and administrative.
i As included in Florida Power & Light Company’s Petition for Approval of Optional Electric Vehicle Public Charging Pilot Tariffs, page 15, footnote 26: “Based on GSD-1 rates effective June 2020, the cost of demand per kWh equates to [($9.98/kW base demand +$1.22/kW capacity and conservation) × (energy / 75 hours)] / energy = $0.15 / kWh. Added to $0.0222 /kWh base energy and $0.024 fuel and environmental = $0.20 energy and demand per kWh. Based on GSLD-1 rates, the cost of demand per kWh equates to [($12.19/kW base demand + $1.38/kW capacity and conservation) × (energy / 75 hours)] / energy = $0.18 / kWh. Added to $0.0175 /kWh base energy and $0.024 fuel and environmental = $0.22 energy and demand per kWh.”
