Join the Fight: AARP Florida Launches 'Get Amp'd UP to Keep Rates DOWN' Campaign Against Duke Energy and TECO's Rate Hike Proposals
Florida está ampliando un programa de subvenciones estatales para ayudar a más personas a mejorar sus viviendas para evitar daños causados ​​por huracanes y reducir las primas de seguros.
Florida is expanding a state grant program to help more people upgrade their homes to prevent damage from hurricanes and reduce insurance premiums.
TECO is asking for a total base rate increase of $467.7 million for residential consumers through 2027. Over three years, the total revenue raised from the rate increases would be between $1.14 billion and $1.23 billion. It's unjust that our hard-earned money, meant to cover essential services like electricity, is being used for lobbying efforts that serve the interests of utility companies.
Duke Energy is seeking approval for an $820 million increase from the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). This rate hike will burden households already struggling with rising costs.
Millions of Florida residents find electric utility issues hard to follow. Regulated by a far-away, low-profile state agency, largely the domain of expensive utilities lawyers, powerful corporations and influential special interest experts, electric utility regulations are often unfair and unfamiliar for customers.
