We just paid $817 dollars to Florida Power and lights last week when the truck came out . They told us to pay $817 and we did and someone will call us back to tell us what we have to do to keep the power on.
They never did g...et back with us and around 1 o'clock today a FPL Truck showed up and cut the power off at the pole.
.Chrissy begged them to find out what was going on and what we have to do.
They said - The collection department refused to turn the power back on and the truck left without giving us any more information.
I just got off the phone with a rep from FPL and I just got back from the FPL pay station.
We have to cover the deposit to get and keep the power back on of $1301.00.
We are waiting for a call back from FPL to tell us when they are sending out the FPL Truck to turn the power back on today.
They said if they could do it today.
I contact SSN6 ,The Sarasota Herald Tribune and waiting for call back from them.
Also FPL informed me that after the $1301 is covered we owe $1269.00 for power used since January 1st and that will be billed on April 22, 2001.
Why could they not tell us last week in what we have to do , so this would have not happened.
I should have called them.
We beg of you please share on Care2 and all other Social Networks and blogs.
GOOD NEWS: The power was turned back on at 5pm today. All the kitties are fine. It got up to around 78. 80 in some rooms in the Haven. Chrissy is the most shook up up by today's event, so I'm in the dog house.
I made over twenty calls to different people at FPL get the power turn on. Some of the FPL people were telling me, tomorrow that... they will be out. I even called their Media office line, to inform them of a definitive PR disaster for them & us, if anything happen to the kitties.
My pleas were finally heard by a nice lady in a a different department and she got the reconnect order expedited to today.
They sent out a Emergency responses unit, who were very nice and understanding.
We are still raising funds to cover the $1301 I gave them. If the funds are not their ,they will be out to turn it off.
Also we owe FPL we owe $1269.00 for power used since January 1st and that will be billed on April 22, 2001.
Today started off great as you can read by the previous post. Also the blog for today just goes to show we can advert this stuff from happening again as long as we can get local volunteers to take us to the next level.
We have everything in place accept the additional help we need.
We have two AC Units , one old and one new one that was subpar for the Haven.
We had FPL out twice to analyzed the problem with the high bills.
We have brand new installation the attic in the Haven.
We are putting some of the stuff we need on our Amazon list such as Window Tint and white roof paint for the places that are tarred down.
This will bring the bill down.
We need help in writing those grants for 2 new AC systems.
Mad Kitty Love goes out to you all for being their once again.
