Duke Energy customers are about to start paying for the company's costly mistakes under a settlement approved by state regulators.
The Florida Public Service Commission spent about 20 minutes debating the settlement before approving it Thursday.
Customers are on the hook for $3.2 billion. It all stems from a botched repair job that eventually led to the closing of the Crystal River Nuclear Plant.
Duke customers will start paying an additional $5.32 a month starting in January of 2014. The cost could go up even more beginning in 2015.
