Hurricane Michael Recovery

Regulators Sign Off On Duke Hurricane Costs

Jun 12, 2019

With little discussion, the state Public Service Commission on Tuesday approved an agreement that will allow Duke Energy Florida to use savings from a 2017 federal tax overhaul to cover Hurricane Michael power-restoration costs.

The agreement will shield Duke customers from having extra charges tacked onto their monthly bills to pay for restoring and rebuilding the electric system after the Category 5 hurricane in Northwest Florida.
