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 FPL.com.;
" 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 ELSE HAD ENOUGH??? ANYONE ELSE OUTRAGED???
It is time that Floridians have a non-profit utility company! FPL is making millions of dollars in profits off of a necessity while Floridians are losing their homes daily. At what point did legislators decide that companies should profit from necessary public services??? We have ONE viable choice for electric and unfortunately we need air conditioning for our families and pets. Recently FPL acknowledged that contributions from cusomers earmarked for new energy sources was used for other things.
STOP FOR PROFIT MONOPOLIES! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
