the new company by offering pay / benefits that can’t be matched until the company has a large enough market

The Public Service Commission regulates these types of transactions


Small Business Owners Ask Attorney General to Investigate FPL's Business Practices 

Argue Company is Using Public Assets to Enter Private For-Profit Markets

Link to Original Story

The Florida Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Contractors Association (FRACCA) and a statewide coalition of mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractors, the MEP Coalition for Fair Competition, today asked Attorney General Pam Bondi to investigate the business practices of Florida Power & Light (FPL). Specifically, the groups claim that FPL is misappropriating regulated public assets to enter private for-profit markets.

"FPL is using utility ratepayer funds and assets to buy their way into HVAC, electrical, plumbing and

other industries and their goal is to put small local companies out of business and control these markets," 

said Jaime DiDomenico,  

the President of Cool Today, an HVAC, plumbing and electrical company based in Sarasota, 

and a member of the MEP Coalition for Fair Competition. 


"We hope the Attorney General will intervene to protect local businesses, jobs and consumers."


NextEra Energy, FPL, FPL Energy Services and Jupiter-Tequesta A/C all share officers and directors. 

In addition, FPL has admitted to collecting pricing data and customer information 

from independent contractors participating in rebate programs.
