Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has invested more than $3 billion since the historic 2004-2005 hurricane seasons to build a stronger and smarter energy grid you can count on in good weather and bad. The improvements we have made to the grid have improved service reliability for our customers by more than 30 percent over the past seven years. And, we’re not stopping there. Learn More

Floridians know all too well that our state’s geographic location increases our propensity for catastrophic weather, and unfortunately, hurricanes mean more than strong winds and rain. Hurricanes also cause Florida’s property insurance marketplace to be far more complex than other states. For years, the Florida Chamber has advocated to better protect Floridians from the financial risk associated with our government-run property insurance entities. We have long-supported protecting families and businesses against “hurricane taxes” and making necessary changes to the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund (Cat Fund). We will continue our efforts to reform Florida’s current property insurance market. In the meantime, we encourage you to be prepared. Learn More
