Tallahassee utility bills to get lower

Apr 2, 2012

Tallahassee natural gas customers should see lower charges on their next utility bills. As Sascha Cordner reports, at the start of April, natural gas rates for residential customers decreased by three-percent.

General Manager for Tallahassee’s Underground Utilities Mike Tadros says thanks to more residents turning to natural gas as a fuel source, the city is seeing much lower rates.

“To switch to natural gas, I think is a very excellent program. It’s the cleanest fuel that they can use. It’s very efficient and it’s cheap. It’s considered one of the cheapest energy sources available right now in the Tallahassee area.”

Tadros says the decrease in natural gas rates and the city’s recent reduction in electric rates are expected to save Tallahassee customers 138-million dollars for this year. Overall, natural gas rates have dropped by 27-percent since 2009.
