We know you value clean, resilient natural gas to fuel your life and we thank you for choosing Peoples Gas to deliver it to your home.
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 residential customers with annual consumption between 100 and 249 therms and billed on the RS-2 rate to see an increase of about $8 on their total monthly bills.
View this table to see how the proposed rates and service charges compare with what you pay today.
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.
