PSC Customer Service Hearings Set for TECO Rate Request in Tampa and Winter Haven

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will conduct customer service hearings on Wednesday, May 29, and Thursday, May 30, for customers of Tampa Electric Company (TECO).  In April, TECO filed a petition with the PSC for an increase to its base rates.

As of May 2013, a 1,000 kilowatt-hour (kWh) monthly bill for residential customers is $102.58.  Using TECO’s proposed increase, a 1,000 kWh monthly bill for residential customers is estimated to be $112.99 in January 2014. 

The hearings allow customers to comment on the proposed rates and any TECO quality-of-service issues.  Customers are invited to attend the hearings at the following times and locations:
