LEESBURG, Fla. — The city of Leesburg is lowering rates for its 24,000 electric customers.

  • Power rate going down slightly for Leesburg customers
  • Rate change will offset changing fuel costs, city says

Starting with the June 2019 billing cycle, the bulk power cost is being reduced by $5 per 1,000 kilowatt hours.

With the decrease, the typical bill for the first 1,000 kWh of residential use will be $112.94.

The power adjustment is intended to offset fluctuating fuel costs, Leesburg said in a news release.

Electric consumption traditionally increases during hot summer months.

The Leesburg city government also serves another 24,000 customers with its electric, gas, water, and wastewater utilities.
