Before I get into this post, can we give a round of applause to our friends at Florida Power & Light Company (FPL)? This content may be sponsored, but they did a fantastic job getting power back in Boca Raton post-Hurricane Irma. I’ve never appreciated my A/C and pool pump more! Having electricity is honestly a cause for celebration. And after everything local families have been through this summer, I’m proposing a virtual toast. Join me in celebrating Energy Action Month with FPL!
What is Energy Action Month? Besides an excuse for some (chilled by your working refrigerator) champagne, Energy Action Month was established to:
- Increase awareness about energy consumption
- Encourage energy-saving actions
How Your Family Can Celebrate Energy Action Month with FPL
If you own an Amazon Alexa, be sure to download/enable the new free FPL skill from the Alexa Skill store. Once you do this, you can request tips from Alexa to help your family save energy and money.
For example, you can say, “Alexa, open FPL” and then try out voice commands like:
- How can I lower my energy bill?
- What’s your energy-saving tip of the day?
How neat is that?

Take the Online Home Energy Survey
By taking FPL’s Online Home Energy Survey, your family can get a personalized savings plan filled with energy-saving tips and recommendations. It also includes programs and rebates that may be available to you.
This tool works with your personal Energy Dashboard to show you how much energy your family uses down to the hour. It also includes an estimated breakdown of how much you’re spending on appliances, cooling and heating.
Also, be sure to download FPL’s fantastic mobile app if you haven’t already. Remember, you can always use it for:
- On-the-go, instant access to monitor energy usage
- Seeing how weather impacts your bill
- Receiving important alerts and reminders
- Reporting an outage
- Viewing your projected bill
