FPL completes the integration of Gulf Power; Customers will see their bill increase: NorthEscambia.com
Florida Power & Light Company and Gulf Power Company have integrated and are now doing business as Florida Power & Light Company in Northwest Florida.
Former Gulf Power customers will see their bills increase by nearly $ 7 per month in January due to the rising cost of natural gas.
Panhandle customers will see a price increase in the short term, but a reduction in the long term. The tariff plan will directly support the largest solar construction in the United States, including 16 million solar panels at more than 50 new sites. The company said that was enough to power a million homes.
The total increase in 2022 for the typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month will be approximately $ 15 per month.
Former Gulf Power customers will now use the FPL.com website and log in with their existing username and password to manage their account. The FPL app will also be available for download to provide customers with instant and secure access to their accounts. Additionally, customers will be able to report an outage through the website and app.
FPL will also rename Gulf Power’s office buildings, trucks and uniforms with the FPL logo in the coming months. During this transition period, customers can see employee uniforms and vehicles with the FPL or Gulf Power logo.
