After gas prices continued their downward trend in December, South Florida consumers can soon look forward to another energy-related perk: a lower utility bill.
A typical residential bill with 1,000-kWh of usage will go down approximately $2 per month beginning Jan. 1, 2015, Florida Power & Light announced on Tuesday.
Business owners will see their bills decrease by roughly 1 percent depending on the rate class and type of service, according to FPL.
By law, FPL is required to pass on the fuel savings when prices drop.
Never miss a local story.
The utility company boasts that its typical customer bill is approximately 25 percent lower than the national average and the lowest of all reporting utilities in Florida.
