FLORIDA POWER RATES WON'T RISE AS MUCH: Florida Power Corp. customers will face a smaller-than-expected increase in their electric bills in January, thanks to a continued fall in the St. Petersburg utility's projected fuel costs. A customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity will pay a monthly bill of $80.35, up slightly from the current $80.25, but lower than the $80.58 that the utility had estimated in September. Until then, Florida Power had expected a 1,000-kilowatt customer to pay $81.64 a month. But the company's projected fuel costs have been falling further than expected, which it attributed to the diversity of its fuel mix. Utilities are required by law to pass on such cost savings to consumers.
