Duke Energy wins SEPA utility transformation program award for Florida subscription pilot program
September 19, 2022
The nonprofit Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) offered its 2022 Utility Transformation Program of the Year award to a Duke Energy subscription pilot program last week for its efforts to provide Florida customers with renewable energy, smart thermostats, and flat monthly bills.
Known as Your FixedBill, the program allowed customers of Duke Energy to pay the same flat-rate energy bill for a year, with no adjustments required at the program’s conclusion. This allowed consistency, providing the same rate monthly no matter the market price fluctuations caused by fuel prices, drastic weather changes, and more. The only things determining the monthly payments were customers’ past energy usage, historical average weather temperatures, and a general program fee.
