FPL Name Change. By Geniusofdespair

Florida Power and Light Group is changing its name to NextError Energy. Scratch that. My mistake, it is NextEra Energy. Hmmm. I think you might want to rethink that name change FPL because NextError is kind of catchy.

Do they honestly think they can run away from their reputation with a name change?

I still like "Florida Plunder and Loot"

Just like Comcast rebranding as "Xfinity" -- same crappy company, new even crappier name (including stupid "X's").

The name you coined is the name that will stick.

The name change was only for FPL Energy - the company that manages the unregulated energy properties that the FPL Group controls.

The solar farms in California, Wind Farms it bought from the failed Enron, etc. are on FPL Energy's books. That's why FPL (Utility) can claim that they're huge in wind and solar. The Utility doesn't directly control them and actually can't even buy the energy for Florida users.

I think they changed to NextEra to make it less confusing to even their own company people. Although, I'm quite certain the Utility will still claim the deeds of their superficially related renamed kin.

FPL pays its CEO over $10 mil, right?
