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.
The Florida Public Service Commission recently approved an increase to our base rates as well as adjustments to other charges. We are committed to safety and serving our customers, and we work hard to manage our business prudently. This is only our second increase in the past 15 years, and revised rates will help us safely and reliably operate the system while keeping pace with Florida’s growth and evolving customer expectations.The increase will vary by customer rate class and will take effect in January 2024. Impacts to the Customer Charge and Distribution Charge portions of your bill will be less than we originally proposed, and the Purchased Gas Adjustment (PGA), which reflects the cost of natural gas, will be going down. Typical residential customers with annual consumption between 100 and 249 therms and billed on the RS-2 rate will see an increase of around $7 on their total monthly bills.
View this table to see how your bill will change in 2024.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.
