Some Key Points:

Freeport Electric has a team of people dedicated to keeping our energy costs as low as possible. We recognize that the FAC value can fluctuate widely from month to month. We are working with the Department of Public Service to find a solution to stabilize this, but for now we are mandated to use the formula prescribed by our tariff.

It is important to keep in mind that even during months with a higher than average FAC our bills are still 30% lower than LIPA.
