How Does Natural Gas Service Work in Florida?
In 2000, Florida enacted energy choice programs that gave commercial business owners the right to choose their natural gas provider. This means restaurants, hotels, dry-cleaners and other businesses no longer have to rely on their local natural gas utility company for service. Your utility company is still responsible for maintaining lines and delivering your natural gas—and that’s who you’d call in case of an emergency. But many businesses now choose a third-party provider like Gas South for more rate options and excellent customer service.
Choosing Your Business Gas Supplier in FL
The natural gas utilities in Florida are a combination of investor-owned utilities (regulated by the Florida Public Service Commission), municipal utilities, and special gas districts. These utilities manage the supply of natural gas to their respective service areas while they, or third-party providers like Gas South, manage the transportation of natural gas to your business. Through supplier choice, Gas South can partner with businesses to meet their unique natural gas needs.
With Gas South, you have the option to lock in a fixed rate for the length of your agreement. So, no matter how the market fluctuates, you still pay the same rate per therm. The price only varies by how much natural gas you use each month. Florida utility companies only offer variable rates, which tend to fluctuate unpredictably month to month. These often cost more and make budgeting more difficult.
Supplier choice is only available to commercial customers in Florida. However, if you’re a residential customer looking for more information on natural gas service in Florida, you can find information on local providers here.
