If you are a customer of Duke Energy then you you will see an increase in your bill in March. The Florida Public Service Commission approved Duke Energy Florida’s request to collect millions of dollars to cover the costs related to 2019 Hurricane Dorian and Tropical Storm Nestor. So, starting with the March 2020 bill and going through the February 2021 bill customers will see an increase of $5.34 per 1,000 kWh of electricity on a typical monthly bill. “Florida utilities had to mobilize a significant workforce to prepare for possible storm damage and be positioned to restore power as quickly as possible following Hurricane Dorian and Tropical Storm Nestor,” PSC Chairman Gary Clark said. “We will continue to scrutinize storm costs to minimize the impact on customer bills and ensure that Florida remains the leader in disaster preparation and post-storm restoration.”
