FPL Energy Services Extends Natural Gas Service in Florida

FPL Energy Services, an affiliate of FPL Group, Inc., today announced the expansion of its natural gas service to businesses throughout Florida. This extension of service comes as a result of further deregulation of the natural gas retail market in the state.

FPL Energy Services will be selling in the natural gas markets where Peoples Gas, City Gas, Central Florida Gas and Florida Public Utilities now serve. Customers will include small, medium, and large-size businesses. Businesses do not need to be an FPL electric customer to purchase natural gas from FPL Energy Services.

The company says businesses can now look for the provider offering the best possible value. For example, FPL Energy Services offers flexible pricing options that include indexed and fixed pricing, unmatched customer service, as well as customized solutions for businesses' gas and overall energy needs.

"When choosing our natural gas supplier we considered the fact that FPL is one of the largest gas buyers in the nation. With their team of experienced natural gas traders they were able to offer a reliable gas supply at a price that saved the company more than 13 percent in yearly natural gas costs," said Walter Youll, director of engineering, for Boca Resort located in Palm Beach County.

Throughout Florida, small and larger businesses are choosing their natural gas supplier. Sallyanne Cos, co-owner of Bunky's Seafood Grille & Raw Bar in Satellite Beach agreed that FPLES can save businesses money. "I went with FPL Energy Services for natural gas service because the price was lower. Most of our equipment such as fryers, grills, and a hot water heater, is powered by gas, so the savings can make a difference," she said.
