We all know that the world now is adapting to new, high-definition technologies. Some people have smart homes and can use mobile apps, like this one from Florida Power and Light, to control things in and around their homes. It’s not only convenient and easy, but pretty cool too.
Just in time to beat the heat this summer, customers can use FPL’s app for on-the-go, instant access to monitor energy usage, see how weather impacts their bill, and receive important alerts and reminders.
FPL is hosting sweepstakes for customers and will be giving away a $10,000 smart home makeover. How cool is that?! But, if your home isn’t a “smart home”, don’t worry. There are things you can do with just an app to become a more aware of the energy you use and money you spend, like:
Monitor your energy usage.
Compare the billing of three straight months within the year to see how your usage fluctuates and the weather changes.
View your projected bill.
It is important to assume the next bill and understand what your bill is projected to be so that you can take steps to lower that the next month.
Check your account summary.
View and edit the important profile information and communication preferences.
Track the length of your billing cycle.
Observe where you are in your billing cycle. It can range from 25 to 35 days.
Pay your bill quickly and securely.
Make a payment on or before due dates to avoid late charges.
Report an outage.
Check the power status and if needed, submit an outage report. (There is nothing worse than no wi-fi, right?!)
Stay informed with alerts.
Receive important reminders about storms and bill payments. This time of year (hurricane season) this is vital!
