Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) filed a petition with the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) for a rate increase on March 17, 2012. The petition requests a general base revenue increase of approximately $525 million, effective in January 2013, and a base step adjustment of $170 million, effective when FPL's Cape Canaveral plant becomes operational in June 2013.
The PSC will conduct hearings on the matter, in the Miami area, as follows:
