Who are they trying to kid? In order to get customers to pay an additional billion dollars a year in their base rates, Florida Power & Light has applied for a base rate increase of 31 percent.

According to Charlie Beck of the Office of Public Counsel, this is the biggest rate increase he has ever seen. The base rate on the average residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month is now $39.31 and will be $51.71 with the new base rate increase.
