The Florida Public Service Commission has scheduled a quality of service hearing in Sarasota 9:30 a.m. Thursday, May 31 at City Hall as part of its decision making process regarding Florida Power & Light Company’s request for a base rate increase. The meeting will be held Thursday.
 
Residential and business customers of FPL are invited to share their views of FPL’s service quality.

FPL filed its rate request on March 19 and updated its projection for the total bill impact on April 27 due to revised estimates for fuel prices and costs for ongoing construction of upgrades at nuclear facilities as well as other data adjustments. Per the revised estimates, the base portion of a typical 1,000-kWh residential customer bill is expected to increase by 23 cents a day, or $7.09 per month in 2013. Offset in part by adjustments to fuel and other charges, the actual 2013 net increase on a typical customer’s total bill is projected to be $1.41 a month or about 5 cents a day.

For business customers, the increase to the base portion of the bill is expected to be about 3% for most non-demand customers.
