PSC Customer Service Hearing Set for Progress Rate Request in Apalachicola


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will conduct a customer service hearing on Thursday, July 30, 2009, for customers of Progress Energy Florida, Inc. (Progress).  In March, Progress filed a petition with the PSC for an increase to its base rates.

This month, a 1,000 kwh monthly bill for residential customers is $122.79.  Using Progress’ proposal, a typical 1,000 kwh monthly bill for residential customers would increase to $135.79 in 2010.  Progress provides electric service to approximately 1.6 million retail customers in 35 Florida counties.

The hearing allows customers to comment on the proposed rates and any quality-of-service issues relevant to the utility.  Customers are invited to attend the hearing at the following time and location:

Thursday, July 30, 2009
