The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold a Commission Conference on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. Items scheduled for consideration can be found here. Public comment may be taken on any item noticed for public participation.
Following the Commission Conference and Internal Affairs Meeting, the PSC will hold its annual Cost Recovery Clause hearing. The hearing will determine 2020 recovery charges for fuel and purchased power, environmental, conservation, and other costs for customers of Florida Power & Light Company; Duke Energy Florida, LLC; Tampa Electric Company; Gulf Power Company, and Florida Public Utilities Company.
The hearing will also determine 2020 purchased gas and natural gas conservation recovery charges for customers of Florida City Gas; Peoples Gas System; and Florida Public Utilities Company’s Indiantown Division, Fort Meade, and its Florida Division of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation.
Under Florida Statute, utilities may recover the fuel and purchased power costs necessary to meet customer demand but may not earn a profit on fuel purchases. The fuel charge appears as a separate line item on customer bills. Capacity, conservation, and environmental costs are included in the energy charge and not listed separately on customer bills.
In addition, November 6-7, 2019, are reserved to continue the hearing, if needed. The starting time of the next day’s session will be announced at the conclusion of each day.
