FPL has reported to Historic City News that local residents can lower their electric bill by enrolling in FPL’s On Call program.
FPL customers agree to let FPL occasionally turn off equipment that they select, for short periods of time, only when absolutely necessary.
In return, customers will receive a monthly credit on their electric bill – even if On Call is not activated.
Historically, On Call has been activated three to four times a year, during times of high electricity demand.
The energy saved by On Call customers has helped the environment by deferring three power plants from being built.
There are more than 770,000 customers who have said yes to savings and protecting the environment by enrolling in On Call.
With FPL’s On Call program, you choose the equipment and time options you want to enroll in the program. Depending on the options you choose, you can save as much as $137 per year.
Qualifying equipment options
Central air conditioning (A/C)
Electric water heater
Pool pump for in-ground pools
Enrollment is free and you may cancel at anytime. See the FPL website for program eligibility, restrictions and details for your home.
