Florida Public Utilities Company (FPU), a wholly-owned subsidiary, owns and operates about 3,030 miles of natural gas distribution mains across 21 counties in Florida and serves about 87,000 customers.
FPU continues to expand its natural gas distribution system throughout the state of Florida. In 2010, FPU purchased the natural gas operating assets of Indiantown Gas Company, adding residential customers and commercial customers in Indiantown, Florida. FPU was granted a non-exclusive franchise, in 2012, to provide natural gas distribution services within the city of Okeechobee. This 33-year agreement enables FPU to bring natural gas service to both residential and commercial customers in the area.
In February 2013, FPU continued to extend its service territories and increase its customer base by purchasing the operating assets of Glades Gas Company in Okeechobee and Clewiston, Florida,
