Vero Beach FPL Deal Ok’d
It will be at Vero least a year before Vero electric customers receive any benefit from the deal.
After 3½ hours of discussion council members approved FPL’s $185 million offer.
The $185 million includes a $20.4 million buyout of the city utility’s debt, $20 million to end the city’s power-purchase contracts with Orlando Utilities Commission and $108 million to end the city’s contractual agreements with the Florida Municipal Power Agency, a statewide power co-op.
Vero Beach also gets about $36.6 million in cash.
The deal is expected to close in October 2018.
