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:
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
