In some good news for Orlando residents, OUC’s Board of Commissioners will vote on a recommended fuel-rate decrease of 18% during the May 9th board meeting. According to OUC, the proposed decrease would be approximately $13 a month for the average residential customer.
Energy costs have increased across greater Orlando, adding pressure to the economic situation and inflation problem. Officials had promised to lower rates as soon as they could.
“At OUC, as a hometown utility, we’re committed to providing not only reliable but also affordable electric and water services for our customers,” OUC General Manager & CEO Clint Bullock said regarding this proposed fuel rate decrease. “We told customers we’d lower rates when we could, and we’re doing it. We thank them for their patience and understanding as we worked together through these challenging times.
The new rates will take effect June 1, 2023, pending review by the Florida Public Service Commission.
“For 100 years, our customers have relied on us to deliver results and provide exceptional value, and this commitment will never waiver,” Bullock added.
