Florida Energy Freedom is committed to building a competitive electricity marketplace.
Of America’s seven largest states, Florida is the only one that doesn't let its residents choose their electricity providers. Florida Energy Freedom believes Floridians should be free to take advantage of the same competitive forces they use in purchasing anything else. Our mission is to make this possible across the state.
Florida's businesses have benefited from energy freedom since our state restructured its natural gas market in 1997. Natural gas competition has saved Floridians $1 billion on their natural gas bills and continues to bring savings to our state’s retailers each month. Competition will lower electric bills just as it has been proven to do with natural gas bills.
Competition already works in other states as well. Currently, Texas pays 20 percent less than Florida on electricity rates, thanks to its competitively restructured market. At those prices, Florida could save up to $5 billion on its electric bills – every year.
Florida Energy Freedom is preparing to make these savings a reality by changing the way Floridians purchase energy, including:
- Proposing a Florida constitutional amendment to foster competitive restructuring
- Supporting legislative and regulatory action on electric competition in Tallahassee
- Advancing competition among electricity suppliers for the benefit of all Floridians
- Promoting public awareness of the benefits of electric competition for Florida
With election season coming soon and the Florida constitutional revision commission convening in 2017, there has never been a better time to restructure Florida’s electricity market. With your help, we can make it happen.
Florida Energy Freedom is an inclusive organization of diverse electricity users who are dedicated to inspiring sustainable change in Florida's electricity market. We advocate for resourceful action and ethical decision making in everything we do. We base this advocacy on a review of objective data from across Florida and best practices from around the country.
We believe that energy choice is about freedom. And we believe that the freedom to choose your electricity provider is more than good policy and more than good business -- it's the right thing to do.
Help us bring energy freedom to Florida.
