"Providing customers with one of the lowest bills in the state, top-notch
reliability and award-winning customer service is something we work hard to
achieve," said Marlene Santos, FPL vice president of customer service. "To win
this award 10 years in a row is a tribute to the exceptional team of FPL
employees who are committed to going above and beyond in serving our
customers."

The ServiceOne Award is based on criteria that cover typical utility customer
service operations, including the contact center, billing, payment, revenue
protection, credit and collections, and safety.

"Excellent customer service can only be achieved if it is a core value for a
company. This is particularly the case in the utility sector, where increasing
demands placed on customer service organizations have challenged traditional
delivery strategies, business processes and modes of customer interaction
especially in light of the evolving digital technology," said Arun Mani, PA's
ServiceOne program director. "FPL has successfully managed to create
outstanding benefits for the customer through a combination of hard work,
effective leadership, and an unwavering commitment to service."

In addition, FPL received ServiceOne Balanced Scorecard Achievement Awards for
its customer care, billing, meter reading, credit and collections, field
service, payment departments and self-service options. Some of the metrics
that helped earn FPL these awards include:

  oProviding accurate bills more than 99.9997 percent of the time
  oReading meters on schedule more than 99 percent of the time
  oAnswering about 90 percent of calls within 30 seconds
