How will you keep us informed about the sale? Will you be offering information events in the community?
We are committed to providing information as it becomes available, and will communicate in a variety of formats, including via U.S. mail, local media, local community leaders and your existing electric utility. You can also visit FPL.com/VeroBeach for more information and updates.
We expect to begin delivering lower electric rates, high reliability, clean energy and award-winning customer service to the Vero Beach community on Dec. 17, 2018.

Once you become an FPL customer, you may benefit from the FPL Automatic Bill Pay® program. Enrolling in the program helps you ensure your monthly payments are made on time, every time – guaranteed. Simply set it up once, and we’ll handle the rest. Once you authorize payment under this program, it gets withdrawn automatically from your bank account every month the day before your due date. It’s that easy for you to enjoy its many benefits including avoiding late or missed payments, and saving time, postage costs and check writing. Receive your bill as a reminder before payment is withdrawn and a confirmation when payment is made. You may enroll by U.S. mail, completing an authorization form and providing a voided check (or deposit slip, if using a savings account) from the designated bank account. You may also sign up online. Once your FPL account has been created, we will mail you your FPL account number and instructions on how to set up online access so you may conveniently enroll online. Your application will be processed immediately through our secure servers. If you have any questions, please call us at 772-403-0021.
No. While we will not accept payment at Vero Beach City Hall, there are several other bill payment options available to you, including a network of walk-in pay agent locations in the area, several just a few miles away from City Hall. To find a list of pay agent locations in your area, visit: FPL.com/payagent. Note: some locations charge a $1.50 fee to process your payment (FPL receives no portion of this fee).
You can also pay your bill through our Automatic Bill Pay program, online, through our FPL Mobile App, by phone, with a debit or credit card or by mail. Most of these options are free and available at your fingertips.
My final bill from Vero Beach Utilities will come after the transition. Will I still make my payment to Vero Beach Utilities or to FPL?
Please make any final payments to City of Vero Beach for electric service used when they were your provider based on the final bill received. If you have any questions about your Vero Beach account, please call the city at 772-978-5100.
Right now I get one bill from the City that covers my water, sewer and power. How will this change after I become an FPL customer?
You still need to pay your water and sewer bill directly with the City of Vero Beach. Once you become an FPL customer, you will receive a bill exclusively for your electric service, which you will need to pay to FPL.
