PSC Denies Gulf Power Company's Rate Reconsideration Request


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) today denied Gulf Power Company’s (Gulf) reconsideration request to include the acquisition and evaluation costs for its North Escambia County Site in base rate charges.  The PSC had denied Gulf’s original request in February (Order No. PSC-12-0179-FOF-EI).

“Gulf’s reconsideration motion did not identify any point of fact or law the Commission failed to consider in our Final Order,” said PSC Chairman Ronald A. Brisé.  “Today, the Commission determined that at this time our original decision remains in the best interest of Gulf’s customers.”

Gulf Power serves 431,000 customers in eight Northwest Florida counties.
