sure FKEC always has your current telephone number(s), including
cell phones. Phone numbers are used by our automated outage reporting
system to pinpoint the location of problems.
2. Daily System Access Charge

3. Energy Charge

cover the expenses involved in delivering energy to your homes
4. Power Cost
This charge is the cost of power purchased by FKEC from
FPL, our primary supplier of electricity. Power cost is passed
directly to FKEC members with no mark-up or add-on. Power cost
varies monthly and also includes FKEC’s own generating costs from
our Marathon Generation Facility.
5. Equity Charge
This rate rider helps FKEC offset the steadily increasing
cost of the materials, services and insurances required to maintain
safe, reliable power.
6. Load Management Credit
To help FKEC manage peak power demand, members can enroll in the “Load
Management ” program
to install load management devices on their air conditioners and
water heaters. This enables FKEC to cycle the units remotely in
return for a monthly bill credit.
If you ordered an outdoor light, the kilowatt hours used by the
light are noted to the left of the charge amount. This figure is
multiplied by the power cost and added to the monthly rental to
determine the total charge.
8. Outdoor Lighting Sales Tax
State sales tax for outdoor light rental.
9. Gross Receipt Tax
This 2.563% tax is assessed to every bill from
the state of Florida.
10. Operation Round-Up®

Trust. One hundred percent of the funds benefit your friends and
neighbors in need in the Middle and Upper Keys.
