FPL Will Charge Those Without "Smart Meters"

FPL Will Charge Those Without

FPL has been given permission to charge customers if they choose to decline the installation of a smart meter. 

The state Public Service Commission gave its approval on Tuesday to allow Florida Power & Light to charge a one-time $95 enrollment fee and a $13 monthly surcharge. 

The Juno-Beach based power company wanted to charge $105 and $16 monthly to more than 2,000 Palm Beach County residents and small businesses that have refused a smart meter or failed to allow installers access. 

FPL officials believe that number will go down considerably once the extra fees take effect in May.
