Florida Public Service Commission Action

Q) Where does the complaint with the PSC stand now?
A) The City withdrew the complaint in June 2017 so that negotiations could begin again.

Q) Why did the City file a complaint with the PSC in the first place?
A) That’s a question best answered by the City Council and staff. However, the primary focus of the complaint revolved around a theory developed by the City’s outside legal consultant who argued that the City should receive an exclusive rate based on its geography and population density.

Q) Do any electric utilities in Florida offer geography-based rates?
A) No. In fact, PSC staff confirmed in an email to the Cape Coral Daily Breeze that no electric utility has a sliding rate structure based on geography, and that all customers within a rate class of a utility pay the same rates.
