PSC "service hearings... to take testimony from the public on the quality and adequacy of FPL's service and other matters..." MAY & JUNE 2012
Big News for FPL Customers! Coming to your area soon!
The Florida Public Service Commission is holding service hearings for customer input. The PSC states that “The purpose of these service hearings is to take testimony from the public on the quality and adequacy of FPL's service and other matters related to FPL's petition for a rate increase.”
These are hearings for customer input to the PSC regarding “Petition for increase in rates by Florida Power & Light Company.” Smart meters have EVERYTHING to do with the proposed changes in rates. Please do not hesitate to speak up about smart meters. We need to show there are many people who do not want them, ever, under any circumstances. The time is NOW.
When speaking or writing about your objections to smart meters, be sure to refer to “problems” or “hazards” and do not use the word “concerns.” Concerns are dismissed and ignored as unsubstantial, while problems and hazards are taken more seriously. Please share this schedule of hearings as quickly as possible, and attend with a friend. It is our best opportunity to be heard. See below in this post for more information.
