Summary 
In March 1999, the Florida Public Service Commission issued an order requiring the state's investor-owned electric utilities, which serve about 80% to 85% of the state's electric customers, to provide information on their fuel mix to customers on a quarterly basis, effective April 18, 1999. This information must be included as a bill insert or on the bill itself, and must be based on data available for the most recent 12-month period. A standard label is not required. Florida was the first state to institute an environmental-disclosure requirement without restructuring its electricity market.
