FPL is proud to be nationally recognized as a leader in Demand-Side Management (DSM) programs. Since 1978, it's been our continued focus and commitment to provide a variety of cost-effective conservation and energy efficiency programs to help keep our customers' bills low.
Our DSM efforts through 2017 have resulted in a cumulative summer peak reduction of approximately 4,800 MW at the generator and an estimated cumulative energy savings of approximately 81,700 gigawatt-hours (GWh) at the generator. This has eliminated the need to construct the equivalent of approximately 15 new 400-MW generating units.
FPL residential customers can take our Online Home Energy Survey and get a personalized savings plan with energy saving tips and recommendations, including programs and rebates that may be available to help them save even more. This tool works with the Online Energy Dashboard and shows how much energy they are using by the month, day and even down to the hour.
More than 750,000 FPL customers are enrolled in our On Call Program. Customers volunteer to participate in the program and receive a credit on their monthly bill when they agree to let us to turn off selected appliances for short periods of time when absolutely necessary. This program helps us meet the energy needs of all customers during times of high energy usage.
