    Solar Energy Savings Available in Florida

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Although Florida Public Utilities Company is one of the largest providers of natural gas and propane in the state, we also want homeowners and businesses to take advantage of the greatest energy source available to them—the sun! To help you take advantage of solar energy, the Florida Public Utilities Company offers rebates that reduce the costs of purchasing and installing solar energy equipment around your home. Read below for more information about the solar rebates we offer for residential and commercial customers in Florida.

    $200 FPUC Rebate on Solar Water Heater Installation

    FPUC offers a $200 rebate on the installation of an approved solar water heater. In order to be eligible for the rebate, your solar water heater must be approved by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), feature an Underwriters Laboratories approved control (if necessary), and be installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the manufacturer’s instructions. Additionally, the installation must feature new equipment and not involve any used or relocated equipment. Participants who wish to take advantage of this rebate must also have a south, east, or west-facing roof that is not shaded.

    $5,000 FPUC Rebate on Solar Photovoltaic Systems

    FPUC offers an incentive of $2.00 per watt of solar photovoltaic (PV) installed, worth up to $5,000. In order to be eligible for this rebate, the PV system must be approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), installed in accordance with the NEC and manufacturer’s instructions, and approve by the local building department to the extent requires by code and/or ordinance or any other substitute certifying laboratory or agency. FPUC will also purchase any excess power generated from your PV system to put even more cash back into your wallet.

Since 1924, FPUC has been providing energy to homes and businesses throughout Florida, and we are happy to help you save money and reduce your energy costs however we can.

    Electrical Safety Tips in the Workplace

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Here at Florida Public Utilities Company, safety is our number one priority. In addition to our 24/7 emergency response team, we also take ongoing proactive measures to maintain our solid safety record, as well as overall industry integrity. To prevent electrical hazards at your place of business, we offer visual inspection programs, workforce training, regulatory testing, and more. We also want to share a few electrical safety tips to keep everyone in your workplace safe in the event of an emergency.

    Keep Away from Exposed Wires

    Assume that all exposed wires are energized at lethal voltages, and never assume that a wire is safe to touch. If a wire is exposed in your workplace, block off the area with emergency tape or furniture and call your energy provider right away. An electrician will be able to safely inspect and repair the exposed wire.

    Leave Electrical Repairs to a Professional

    Speaking of electricians, any electrical repairs need to be performed by qualified and authorized individuals. Even minor electrical work can be extremely dangerous in untrained hands, so never attempt any electrical repairs on your own. If you do not who to call, your energy provider can give you a referral based on the size and scope of the electrical work needed.

    Do Not Use Wet Electrical Equipment

    If any electrical equipment has gotten wet, do not operate the equipment until it has been inspected by a qualified electrician. Even if the equipment looks dry, the internal electrical components may still be wet, which can cause a painful shock or burn, or even electrocution, if handled improperly.

    Florida Public Utilities Company provides 24/7 emergency electrical services. We also provide visual inspections and employee training to ensure that your workplace (and workforce) is safe. To learn more about our electricity safety services, visit our website or call us today at (888) 471-0413.
