Online petition to Stop the FPL Monopoly!

There's a new online petititon that's been launched to "Stop the Florida Power & Light Monopoly!"

Sponsored by a group called People for Fair Utilities, the goal is to get 10,000 signatories in a drive to break FPL's monoplly over electric rates in Florida. The petition reads:
It is time that we say "No" to FPL making profits off of our need for electric. I have looked for ways to cut my electric or go solar but FPL has us by the you know what. I can live without alot of things but my family and animals need air conditioning to survive in South Florida.

According to the FPL website

"for the full year 2008, FPL Group reported net income on a GAAP basis of approximately $1.64 billion, or $4.07 per share, compared with $1.31 billion, or $3.27 per share, in 2007". That is NET income!

Also on the FPL investors site it states, "We are pleased to report that 2008 was our best year ever, which is something we doubt very many companies can say." And, their future outlook is "FPL group is well positioned for earnings growth in future years".


Anyone can sign the "Stop the Florida Power & Light Monopoly!" petition online. Just go to ...
