Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statute 125

Background Discussion
Recent federal regulations require owners of generators to comply with new emission standards adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Florida Power and Light encourages customers to carefully evaluate their specific circumstances with respect to the new EPA regulations. While some customers are likely to find that continuing participation in the CILC/CDR/CS rate will be cost-effective, for others the cost of complying with the new rules may not make continued participation cost-effective.

Staff has carefully reviewed and analyzed the costs and has determined that it is in the County's best interest to exit the rate. Typically, rates require termination notice of five years for CILC or CDR and three years for CS. However, FPL is providing an opportunity to exit the rate prior to the end of the year by completing the 2014 EPA Change in Regulations Rate Termination Opportunity and Request Form.
