FPL’s Home Energy Makeover Teams Help 50 Florida City Families Save On Their Bills And Educate Public About Energy Efficiency
In partnership with the City of Florida City in southern Miami-Dade County, Florida Power & Light Company delivered Home Energy Makeovers for 50 local families today, installing energy-efficient upgrades to help them save money and lessen their impact on the environment by reducing their energy usage.
Together, the money-saving, energy-conserving improvements can save these families as much as 25 percent on their utility bills each year.
“By working with FPL and other organizations, we’re helping provide the residents of our growing community with access to tools and information that can save them money and have a positive impact on their daily lives,” said Florida City Mayor Otis T. Wallace, who participated in several of the Home Energy Makeovers today as a member of one of the teams of volunteers. “This partnership with FPL is one way we are working to make Florida City the best city in which to live, work and play.”
Because FPL’s typical residential bill is the lowest of the state’s 55 utilities and 18 percent below the national average, an FPL customer using 1,000 kwh of electricity a month pays approximately $253 less annually compared to the average American and $458 less compared to the average Floridian. Still, FPL customers can save even more by adopting some of the energy-efficient improvements demonstrated today in Florida City.Customers who want to learn more about smarter, cleaner energy choices can visit FPL’s Energy Savings Toolkit section at www.FPL.com and take FPL’s free, online Home Energy Survey. “FPL is proud to partner with local communities to help residents learn about how they can live more efficiently and environmentally friendly,” said Ramon Ferrer, FPL area manager for southern Miami-Dade County. “We’re committed to helping our customers, especially those on limited or fixed incomes, learn about energy efficiency. The upgrades installed by our talented volunteer teams today are just a few of the simple things that families can do to reduce both their carbon footprint and their monthly expenses.”
