What You Should Know Before the Power Is Turned On

Looks may be deceiving

Although your house may look safe, it may not be safe to receive power. Here are a few simple steps to help avoid injury to yourself and your family, or further damage to your home:

If your roof or windows have leaked... There may be water in your walls and ceiling in contact with electrical wiring...

Then... You may need a licensed electrical contractor to survey your house. Turn off your circuit breakers, remove fuses, unplug appliances and turn off all wall switches.

If you're served by overhead power lines... And you see damage from the house connection to the power line or the box surrounding the meter...

Then... You may need to call an electrical contractor. FPL is not permitted to repair this type of damage. If the meter is damaged, we will take care of it..

If you are served by underground wires... Look at the meter box and determine if it is damaged.

Then... You may need to call a contractor.

Don't make a close inspection: Do not make a close inspection of your wiring or other electrical equipment. Let an electrical contractor perform this job.

Use a licensed contractor: If you do call a contractor, make sure that whomever you hire is licensed by the state. Ask to see a license and a Certificate of Competency (CC) number.
