Just in time for Earth Day, Peoples Gas named environmental champion

Customers value utility’s environmental efforts

TECO Peoples Gas, Florida's largest natural gas distribution utility with about 370,000 customers, is being celebrated among the country's natural gas utilities for environmental leadership, according to a customer survey conducted by Cogent Reports, a division of Market Strategies International.

Peoples Gas has been designated a 2017 "Environmental Champion," based on scores from Cogent's Environmental Dedication Index.

"Natural gas is a clean-burning, domestic fuel that has less impact on the environment, and customers can also get rebates for improving their carbon footprint," said T.J. Szelistowski, president of Peoples Gas. "We are proud of our strong commitment to environmental stewardship – and equally pleased that our customers recognize our efforts."

Peoples Gas was named "Most Trusted Utility Brand" in the United States by Cogent Reports for the past two years, and has also been designated a Customer Champion by the same group.

Peoples Gas System, Florida’s largest natural gas distribution utility, serves about 370,000 customers across Florida. Peoples Gas is a subsidiary of Emera Inc., a geographically diverse energy and services company headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
