I hereby request to become a member of Floridians Against Increased Rates, Inc. (FAIR). I confirm that I am a customer of the Florida electric utility identified below. I support FAIR’s purposes of (a) advocating by all lawful means for the lowest possible electric rates that are consistent with my utility providing safe and reliable electric service, and (b) opposing by all lawful means utility proposals for rates and rate increases that are greater than necessary for my utility to provide safe and reliable service. I request and authorize FAIR to represent my interests in having the lowest possible rates for my electric service that are consistent with my utility providing safe and reliable service. I understand that no payment of dues is required for my membership in FAIR. By typing my name below, I am signing this application electronically. I consent to FAIR’s collection and use of my personal information provided below for the purposes associated with my membership as described in my application.
About Floridians Against Increased Rates
There is no charge to join FAIR. You’ll never be asked for a donation. We are simply recruiting members so that we can be your voice opposing unfair electric rate increases that FPL and other utilities are asking the PSC to approve, and supporting the lowest possible rates consistent with safe and reliable service.
The current situation…
FPL has asked the PSC to approve the largest rate hike in Florida history: FPL’s filings with the PSC indicate that, if approved, its proposed increases would add over $6.2 billion to customer bills over the next 4 years. You can help us fight this increase by joining FAIR today.
Our state suffered massive unemployment and business closures last year. But FPL and its parent company, NextEra Energy, thrived. NextEra recently posted large adjusted profits for 2020 and announced increased stock dividends for its shareholders. They do not need to drain more money from our struggling residents and businesses.
(*) Please note: We respect your privacy. We will not send you hard copy mail. We need your address in case FAIR is required to prove that its members are customers of one of the utilities listed above in proceedings before the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC), including cases before the PSC where your utility is seeking to increase your rates. As unlikely as this may sound, we have to recognize that when FAIR challenges a utility’s proposed rate increases, the utility may try to keep FAIR from intervening to represent the customers’ interests. We also represent that FAIR will not share your information with others unless FAIR is required by law, rule, or order to do so, and if we are required to provide such information in legal proceedings before the PSC, FAIR will seek to protect the confidentiality of your information.

On March 12, 2021 FPL formally requested that the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) approve a series of rate increases, every year for the next four years. These rate hikes – if granted – would result in $6.2 billion in increased customer bills over the next four years, more than $1 billion in 2022 alone, making it the largest electric rate hike in Florida history. FPL and its parent company, NextEra, are already highly profitable, and if this rate hike goes through, FPL's Return on Equity (ROE) would be 20% higher than the national average approved in 2020 by other public service commissions in the United States.
