When your bottom line is dependent on power, every penny counts
Fort Pierce, FL- November 4, 2015 – Fort Pierce City Commission unanimously approved Fort Pierce Utilities Authority’s (FPUA) revised Electric Economic Development Rate Schedule. The City Commission was eager to hear FPUA is looking at creative ways to attract and assist not only potential large customers, but the smaller retail shops like restaurants.
“In today’s competitive economy, sometimes it takes more to attract new businesses and help those that want to expand. FPUA’s Economic Development Program targets not only the large industrial users but may help the smaller already existing customers that want to expand,” said Clay Lindstrom, Director of Utilities for FPUA.
“These Economic Development rates are tailored towards small businesses and the new and expanding businesses looking to call Fort Pierce home,” said Mayor Linda Hudson. “Fort Pierce is a beautiful city with a lot to offer, like a local utility looking out for the small guys.”
“Other large utilities target only the large customer, yet in Fort Pierce, we want to see the small businesses flourish,” said Lindstrom.
FPUA Economic Development rates are broken down by how much a new or expanding customer will use. The chart below outlines the percentage discount in relation to electric usage.
