LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- Florida Power and Light says despite a previous announcement, your energy bill will not go up because of Hurricane Irma.

In fact, they say your bill will actually go down by roughly $3 a month. The company made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday, saying the decrease is because of the new federal tax bill.

Back in October, FPL announced they needed to get more than $1 billion from customers to pay for Hurricane Irma damage. But again, those charges will not go into effect.
