PENSACOLA, Fla (WPMI) — Gulf Power customers will soon see an increase in their monthly power bills.
Florida Public Service Commission voted unanimously to approve a storm restoration sur-charge.
Starting in July, you'll pay an extra $8 dollars for every thousand kilo-watt-hours of electricity used.
Gulf Power says the average customer uses a thousand kilowatts per month.
Surcharge offsets Gulf Power's costs to repair the damage from Hurricane Michael.
The surcharge is scheduled to last five years
