Besides getting a sunny escape from the frigid temperatures up north, there’s another reason why our northern friends can feel good about calling Florida “home” over the winter months. When comparing FPL rates to those of a few northern utilities, FPL customers actually get more for their money.
Here’s what the same money buys in these snowbird states:
• Connecticut – 12 hours of electricity
• New York & New Jersey – 13.5 hours of electricity
• Ohio – 18 hours of electricity
• Michigan – 18.5 hours of electricity
FPL doesn’t just offer the lowest priced electricity in Florida, our typical monthly residential electric bill is 25 percent less than the national average and 37 percent less than the snowbird average. In fact, FPL delivers the energy you need to power your life for just a few dollars a day. That’s great value however you compare it.
You tell us: With these low electricity rates, is it any wonder that snowbirds flock to Florida?
