Re: FPL Proposed Rate Hike… Please Attend FPSC Hearings Starting This Week!

PSCFPL[Thanks to for providing the following alert.]

As part of a rate filing, field customer service hearings are required. The Florida Public Service Commission has issued its notice of meeting dates, times and locations for the hearings to be held for the Florida Power & Light rate case. The notice can be accessed at this link-

Pertinent information on meeting dates, times and locations follows below. Please make an effort to attend one of these hearings and give testimony on the smart meters and FPL’s service. Many of you have had your analogs stolen and replaced with digital meters, without notice and consent, and some had to fight hard to get an analog back. Please let the Commission and FPL know how you feel about how they have mishandled those opting out. For those that had to accept a smart meter due to lack of funds to pay the extortion fees, this is your time to tell the Commission how you feel. If you are an AARP member, please note that AARP has intervened in this rate case and will be there too. Demand they fight for your interests and help procure a cost free opt out for struggling Floridians.

The  purpose  of  these  service  hearings  shall  be  to  take  testimony  from  the  public  on  the  quality  and  adequacy  of  FPL’s  service  and  other  matters  related  to  FPL’s  petition  for  a  rate   increase. The procedure at these hearings shall be as follows:  The Company will present a brief summary  of  its  case  and  then  members  of  the  public  may  present  testimony.   Members  of  the  public  who  wish  to  present  testimony  are  urged  to  appear  promptly  at  each  scheduled  hearing  time  since  the  hearing  may  be  adjourned  early  if  no  witnesses  are  present  to  testify.    All  witnesses shall be subject to cross examination at the conclusion of their testimony.

In  accordance  with  the  Americans  with  Disabilities  Act,  persons  needing  a  special  accommodation to participate at this proceeding should contact the Office of Commission Clerk  no  later  than  five  days  prior  to  the  hearings  at  2540  Shumard  Oak  Boulevard,  Tallahassee,  Florida  32399-0850,  via  1-800-955-8770  (Voice)  or  1-800-955-8771  (TDD),  Florida  Relay  Service.
