The Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC), a state agency, sets the rates utility companies charge for natural gas, water, wastewater, and electricity. The FPSC partners with schools in an ongoing educational effort to promote energy awareness during the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Awareness Program (annually in October) and to promote water conservation during the American Water Works Association’s National Drinking Water Week (annually in May).
