Your Air-Conditioning Cost and Potential Savings

Why does energy cost go up every year?

    1. Oil, which fuels many of our power plants, largely comes from the Middle East.  Political and security concerns within the region, demand the need for renewable energy. 
    2. The need for renewable energy requires an initial investment into research, development and infrastructure.
    3. In efforts to protect our environment, carbon restrictions are mandated and increase operation expenses in every power plant.
    4. FPL says to expect about 9% (as they submitted a request for a 20% increase in January of 1010.)
    5. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) suggest to expect a 13% annual increase.
    6. The Department of Energy issued a report forecasting annual increases up to 15%.

Because the cost of electric power is constantly increasing at a rate of approx.
10% a year, use the chart to find your total cost of AC after 10 years. This is
the amount of money you will give to FPL to cool your home.
