BACKUP

FPL wants to hike your electric rates – a lot.

You can help us stop them by filling out this form today.

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.


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 is pursuing rate hikes totaling $6.6 billion over four years. If approved, it would be the largest such increase in Florida history. 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.

Background

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 $6.6 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 enormously 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.
