The state Supreme Court on Wednesday scheduled arguments on Feb. 8 in challenges to a decision by regulators to approve base-rate increases for Florida Power & Light.
Groups filed two challenges at the Supreme Court after the state Public Service Commission in October 2021 unanimously approved a settlement that allows FPL to raise electric rates over four years.
FPL reached the settlement with the state Office of Public Counsel and several organizations that took part in the case. The Office of Public Counsel represents consumers in utility issues.
