Good News! Utility Bills Proposed to be Lower Next Year


Commission to Consider Electric and Natural Gas Rates on September 26

City of Tallahassee utility customers may soon see a reduction in their electric and natural gas bills. If approved at this week’s City Commission meeting, the new rates would take effect October 1.

A typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours will see a monthly bill decrease of approximately three percent, from $112.81 to $109.07 below the statewide average of $113.91.

The average natural gas customer will see a savings of 10 percent, from $58.75 to $52.79 on their bills.

Lower bills combined with our community’s outstanding gains in conserving energy and water will result in great savings for households and businesses.
A rate study was conducted earlier this year to examine expenses, system modernization, future expansion and customer growth. The review included Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) through FY22.

To lower bills even more, Your Own Utilities encourages customers to take advantage of the City’s many Energy Smart Plus (e+) products and services. These include free home energy audits, ceiling insulation grants, ENERGY STAR and natural gas appliance rebates and much more. For more information, visit
