Daytona Beach, FL-FPL wants to recover $318 million in storm damage from Hurricane Matthew and has filed paperwork with the Public Service Commission that would effectively raise power bills an average of more than $3 a month. Public Counsel J R Kelly of the Florida Office of Public Counsel says that would show up in your power bill within 60 to 90 days.
Most of the damage happened in Volusia, Flagler and St. Johns Counties.
That monthly surcharge would last up to a year and affect all FPL’s customers. FPL has 1.2 million customers in Florida. Kelly says the utility can begin collecting from customers but must make its case to the state and get approval from regulators.
