Florida Utility to Offer Green Power

March 01, 2004

Florida Power & Light (FPL) received approval from the Florida Public Service Commission to offer its residential customers a green pricing program. Under the three-year pilot program, customers will have the option to pay $9.75 more per month for the utility to purchase renewable energy certificates that represent 1,000 kWh of power generated from projects in the Southeast, including Florida. FPL has also committed to develop or purchase 150 kW of photovoltaics capacity in Florida for every 10,000 participating customers. The utility plans to officially launch the program during the first quarter of 2004.
