What if I need an overlap of service at two addresses for more than 45 days?

If you need an overlap of service longer than 45 days, you will not be able to transfer your service from one address to the other. Instead, you will need to:

  1. Stop service at the address you’re vacating. You can choose the service end date during the process.
  2. Start service at the new location. You will create a new account for the new service address.

Until service ends at the address you’re vacating, you will have two accounts with FPL.

Can I transfer my service if I am moving to a different part of Florida?

Yes, as long you’re moving to an area serviced by FPL. You can quickly check whether your location is served by FPL by entering in your address in the Service Area Map.

If you are moving to an area where FPL is not the electric provider, you will need to stop your service with FPL and start service with the new provider. 

How do I transfer my existing electric service to another address?

You can transfer your FPL service to another location served by FPL by simply filling out the transfer form online. You’ll need to provide the new location address and select the date for transferring service.

As a seasonal resident, should I stop my service when I leave Florida?

If you would like the electricity to remain on while you are away in order to power your air conditioner, humidistat, refrigerator, etc... , we recommend not stopping your service.  Simply update your mailing address prior to departing and make sure to include both the start and end dates.
