State regulators back FPL’s plan to help small businesses with electric bills
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – State regulators Tuesday approved a Florida Power & Light pilot program aimed at adding electric-vehicle charging stations, while also signing off on an FPL plan that will offer help with electric bills to some small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The approval by the Florida Public Service Commission of the pilot program comes as the number of electric vehicles on the state’s roads increases. Regulators needed to approve pricing-related issues, including FPL being able to charge 30 cents per kilowatt hour for motorists who charge vehicles at utility-owned sites. Also Tuesday, the commission approved an FPL plan that will provide 10 percent credits on the energy charge portion of monthly electric bills for some small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program, which will cost up to $16 million, would apply to small businesses that meet certain criteria, including a limit on monthly electricity usage.

Regulators to hold hearing on FPL solar plan
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - After receiving a request from the state Office of Public Counsel, regulators will hold a full hearing in October on a major solar-energy proposal by Florida Power & Light. The state Public Service Commission posted an order Friday that said an administrative hearing will be held Oct. 15 and Oct. 16 on FPLs proposed SolarTogether program. Public Service Commission staff members were expected to issue a recommendation July 25 about whether the commission should approve the proposal. But the Office of Public Counsel, which represents consumers on utility issues, filed a request last month for the commission to hold a full administrative hearing before deciding whether to give approval. But Public Service Commission member Gary Clark, who is serving as a prehearing officer on the proposal, issued an order Friday that included the dates for the administrative hearing and detailed procedural deadlines.
