Thank you for your efforts to support our communities and businesses during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Your leadership is vitally important to support businesses and job seekers within our communities. The coronavirus pandemic has presented an unprecedented challenge in keeping businesses afloat, especially small businesses that are the backbone of our economy. These are challenging times, but FPL has a strong track record of preparing for many kinds of emergencies and we are here to support you now just as we did when our economy was booming.
Rest assured that FPL won’t stop delivering affordable, reliable power that our customers have come to count on every day and will continue to work tirelessly to support Florida businesses.
We take our duty to serve seriously and understand how necessary reliable power is to all of you for business continuity to be able to keep our economy moving. The company is responding to the coronavirus challenge by providing the critical infrastructure and electricity that powers our state’s hospitals, health care facilities, emergency response centers, and all of our residential and business customers.
Below are just a few examples of how we have recently mobilized to support the community:
- FPL will significantly lower bills for the second time this year and fast-track savings to customers. In May, FPL is issuing a one-time decrease of nearly 25% for the typical residential customer bill as a result of lower fuel costs. Business customers will also see a significant one-time decrease in May that will vary by rate class.
- FPL is also sharing energy-saving tips that can be easily implemented without the need for additional equipment, and encouraging customers to use free tools, such as the FPL Mobile App and FPL Energy Analyzer, to help monitor their energy use, budget and manage energy costs. Customers can learn more at FPL.com/EnergySavings.
- For those who can afford or want to help others who may need assistance, they can make a donation to our ‘Care to Share’ program. All contributions are distributed to the communities that we serve through a network of nonprofit human-service agencies, and there are no administrative fees.
- FPL and fellow NextEra Energy companies have committed more than $4 million to COVID-19 emergency assistance funds that will be distributed to partner organizations working on the frontlines of the crisis to provide critical support to the most vulnerable members of the community.
If your communities are experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19, FPL and federal, state and local authorities have resources available to help you. A good place to learn more is
