From the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, 07/30/2012:
Critics of Florida Power & Light’s proposed $690 million base rate hikehave questioned why Gov. Rick Scott hasn’t taken a position on it. The increase would amount to $7.09 more a month on the base part of a monthly bill for customers who use 1,000 kilowatt-hours a month but FPL predicts lower fuel costs offset most of the increase, at least for the first year or two. … When asked for Scott’s position on the proposed rate hike, his press secretary said in an email that he wasn’t expecting to get a response last week because key people, including the governor, were out of town. We haven’t heard back from his office today.
