Florida Power & Light Co. customers’ bills are going up slightly to account for the $970 million modernized Cape Canaveral plant that was powered up April 24.
Base rates for the residential customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours a month are increasing by $1.72. A $1.56 decrease in fuel charges brings the net increase to 16 cents, FPL spokesman Mark Bubriski said. That typical bill is now $95 a month, excluding local taxes and franchise fees applicable in some areas.
