FPL customers to get $3 Hurricane Matthew refund

Average refund expected to be $3.18


ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida Power and Light customers are in for a refund. 

The company has agreed to pay back nearly $28 million in surcharges following Hurricane Matthew. 

For a year, FPL added a charge to customers bills to cover costs associated with the 2016 storm. 

The surcharge, which was about $3.35 for an average customer, expired in March. 

If the refund is approved by regulators, the one-time refund would be applied to accounts and would be worth approximately $3.18.
