ELECTRICITY

Florida Power & Light is the company that provides electricity in Brevard County.  You can start new service online at:

https://app.fpl.com/sowww2/SowwwHtmlController?command=displayWelcomeCommand

To start service at a home, you will need:

  1. Address where you want service
  2. Social security/social insurance or driver’s license number
  3. Preferred start date

FPL uses a credit scoring system to determine if a deposit is required in order to open an account. Customers who are required to pay a deposit are required to provide a deposit equal to two month’s expected electricity use when the home is occupied, which is standard utility practice.  For example, if you occupy your home year-round and use an average of $100 of electricity per month, the deposit amount would be $200.  Your deposit is refunded with any earned interest when the account is closed or after 23 months of consecutive service barring any problems with payment during that time.

You may also call 321.723.7795 to start service.
