FPL Resources Available

Posted to CoronaVirus by Barbara Brooke-Reese

Having trouble paying your FP&L bill because of COVID-19?

You may qualify for local, state and/or federal financial assistance, which has increased significantly due to the pandemic. And, at Florida Power and Light we are here to help. All it takes is a phone call. We will continue working closely with you to do everything we can to avoid turning lights off for nonpayment, which is and has always been a last resort. For more information please call FP&L directly at 800-226-3545.
