We know you value clean, resilient natural gas to fuel your business and we thank you for choosing Peoples Gas to deliver it to you.
As Florida grows, we must make investments in maintaining and expanding our system to continue to reliably serve our customers. The decision to raise rates is not an easy one for us. We know rising prices due to inflation are affecting families and businesses across the nation, including ours. We work hard to manage our business prudently and we have only raised base rates once in the past 15 years.
On April 4, 2023, we filed a request with the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) requesting a future increase in base rates. If approved as filed, the base rate increase will vary by customer rate class and would likely take effect in January 2024. We expect typical customers with annual consumption between 2,000 and 9,999 therms and billed on the GS-1 rate to see an increase of around 13% on their total monthly bills.

The PSC has scheduled service hearings to provide customers an opportunity to express their views on quality of service and the impact of the requested rate increase. Learn more.
