SUMMARY:

                                          

On October 6, 2008, the City Council voted to suspend Section 10-4-16 of the Code of the City of Pensacola regarding the installation of natural gas piping services.

 

On September 22, 2011 the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 21-11 reinstating installation services and a gas piping fee, while also proposing that Pensacola Energy develop a program in partnership with local plumbers to retain and grow customers through the promotion of natural gas appliances.  The Plumbing Partnership Program was initiated in 2012.

 

The Mayor has directed Pensacola Energy to suspend services authorized under Section 10-4-16(c) until City Council has taken action on a proposed ordinance repealing Section 10-4-16(c).  With City Council’s approval to repeal Section 10-4-16(c), Pensacola Energy installation services for natural gas piping and appliances would no longer be authorized.  Pensacola Energy will continue with the Pilot Lite Program as well as respond to emergency safety calls including calls when the odor of gas is detected.  Pensacola Energy will take whatever measures would be necessary to ensure the immediate safety of their customers.  Any major repairs or installations would be the responsibility of the customer. Therefore, Pensacola Energy would no longer be authorized to provide these services.
