Affordable Electric Service
St. Lucie and Martin County, Florida residents get most of their electric service from Florida Power & Light (FPL). Though electricity is not really “penny cheap”, we should consider ourselves fortunate. By operating efficiently, FPL has kept its typical residential customer bills among the very lowest of all 55 electric utilities in Florida. By investing in more efficient power generation technology, their operating costs are the lowest of all utilities in the country with more than 100,000 customers. These improvements saved FPL customers approximately half a billion dollars in fuel costs in 2010 alone.
FPL ranks No. 2 among electric utilities nationwide in electric generation avoided through demand-side management programs. Because of partnership with customers, FPL has saved more megawatts than nearly any other utility in the country.
