Are you going to sit there and do nothing? There has been a 40-year decline of our middle class and the growing gap between the very rich the 1 % and everyone else the 99%, or do we fight for a economic agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides health care for everyone. We need to remove the status of preexisting conditions from all Medical Insurance including Workers Compensations. We need to take on the enormous economic and political power of the billionaire class who are in office now, or do we continue to submit to their economic and political aristocracy
The list goes on and on. We must protect We the People not them the Big Corporations and the beyond wealthy.
These are issues the Republicans have totally ignored.
This is how Rick Scott struck to everyone in Florida. He said he didn't raise taxes but he allowed Duke Energy to charge you a asset tax for the rest of your life if you use Electric. I say everyone get solar panels and close down the electric companies in Florida Wonder how much they paid Rick Scott during his campaigns and under the table to stick it to Floridians I am calling for an impeachment of Rick Scott as a Senator. Remove all the Republicans in the State Government and revise this.
Dear Ms. Miller:
This E-Mail is in response to your recent inquiry to the Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) regarding Duke Energy and the Asset Securitization charge.
In 2015, the Florida Legislature passed, and Governor Scott signed into law, Section 366.95, F.S., authorizing the issuance of nuclear-asset recovery bonds. Duke Energy filed its petition with the FPSC in July 2015, for approval to issue the bonds and to collect the nuclear-asset recovery charge on a per kWh basis from all customer rate classes over a period of 20 years. The nuclear asset recovery charge will be paid by all existing and future customers receiving transmission or distribution services from Duke Energy. The funds Duke Energy receives will allow it to recover its investment in the CR3 regulatory asset. In November 2015, the Commission issued a nuclear-asset recovery bond financing order, allowing Duke Energy to issue the bonds to cover the Crystal River III (CR3) nuclear power plant retirement costs.
On June 16, 2016, the Commission approved the issuance of $1.294 billion in nuclear asset-recovery bonds to cover the retirement costs of the CR3.
You may review all the information filed for Commission consideration in this matter by accessing the FPSC website at www.floridapsc.com.Under the Clerk’s Office tab at the top of the page, click on Dockets. Type in the docket number 150171. Click the Search button. Then select Document Filings Index for a list of all filings in the docket. This procedure allows you to view all of the information filed by the utilities and other parties in the docket.
FPSC rules state bills are not considered delinquent prior to 20 days from the date of mailing or delivery by the utility. If payment is not received by the due date on the customer billing, the utility must provide a five working day notice of disconnection prior to disconnection of service.
We forwarded your concerns to Duke and requested that a representative contact you regarding this matter.
Thank you for contacting the Florida Public Service Commission. I hope this information is helpful.
