Natural gas service and the little
City of Lake Worth.

The uncertainty and fear about spiking
electric rates is over.

However, still thinking about converting to
natural gas in your home?

One of the benefits of NG is during long electric outages you can still cook and boil water.

Learn more below how to switch over to NG. Gas is “cheap, clean, affordable, and plentiful”.

When the Lake Worth Electric Utility rates were sky high prior to 2012 and some electeds continued to hint they wanted the rates to go even higher, that set off a panic in this City. Residents who lived in areas with NG service lines, who were fortunate enough to be able to afford the initial investment, began switching over or “hooking up” new or pre-owned appliances to NG provided by Florida Public Utilities, e.g., stoves, cloth dryers, and water heaters.

“Leading the Fight to Lower Electric Bills”?
After Cara Jennings got re-elected in 2008 electric rates continued to spike. Remember, political speech is Free Speech, one can claim almost anything on a political mailer.

Homeowners previously on full-electric in their homes in NG service areas, who later converted over to gas, saw their utility bills drop significantly — but others in areas without NG service available were out of luck — it came as a surprise to many when they found out their neighborhood didn’t have gas lines but other areas in the City did.

Prior to 2012, City administrations used the Electric Utility to fund their wish lists, ergo the term “cash cow” that our City’s Electric Utility used to be called. Then in September 2015, well, all hell broke loose again when this news broke:

After all the work to lower electric rates since 2012, two commissioners wanted to spike up rates again in 2015.
Of course, this “push” came as the Summer heat was winding down. Later, then-District 2 commissioner, Chris McVoy, PhD, lost his bid for re-election and then-District 4 Commissioner Ryan Maier
opted not to run again.

Anyway. Enough of the history how we got here. Interested in finding out more about NG?
