Florida INC. One Billion Dollar Rate Hike

We have just a week to stop Florida Power and Light's (FPL) rate hike request for unnecessary power plants that burn fracked gas.

On November 29, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will decide whether to allow the rate hike requested by FPL, which includes more than  one billion dollars' worth of power plants that will soon be  obsolete as FPL itself expects solar power and batteries to out-compete plants that burn gas.

As FPL showed by spending millions of dollars to support Amendment 1 and thwart the growth of rooftop solar, FPL will stop at almost nothing to put its profits before people -- whether it's stunting the clean energy economy in the Sunshine state, or needlessly increasing the state's reliance on fracked gas. Fortunately, Florida voters saw through the charade last week and voted down Amendment 1.

Don't let FPL put its profits ahead of your health, our economy and the environment.

Call the PSC today at 1-800-342-3552  to let them know you oppose FPL's rate hike request for unnecessary gas plants.
