ELECTRIC PAYMENT ASSISTANCE

FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT CARE TO SHARE PROGRAM

The FPL Care To Share® Program is sponsored by FPL and is designed to provide emergency assistance funds to customers who are in a crisis situation and unable to pay their electric bill

A household may receive assistance of up to a maximum of $500 for electric service once in a 12-month period. Exceptions to this limit may be made by the administrating agency, based on special circumstances and with approval of FPL. The maximum assistance payment has been temporarily increased to $750, when deemed appropriate by the qualifying agency. This increase is effective through June 30, 2010.

To be eligible for FPL Care To Share Program funds, FPL customers must:

•Possess a delinquent FPL bill, final notice or disconnect notice

•Be in imminent danger of being disconnected (or have already had service disconnected)

•Show proof of a personal or family crisis

•Have exhausted other available energy assistance sources, such as government-funded programs

•Have a household income that falls at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level (The incomes of all persons residing at the service address are to be included.)
