Economic Development Initiatives

At Florida Public Utilities, we’ve been serving Florida for decades and have been a partner in the community since 1863. Our parent company, Chesapeake Utilities Corporation, has served the Delmarva Peninsula for over 160 years. We will continue to safely serve for as long as our customers need energy for their homes and businesses.

Part of doing business the right way is being an active participant in the economic development of our service area. We offer an economic development program to help companies seeking to relocate, build or expand in Florida. We provide leadership, knowledge and resources to help customers choose development sites or plan expansions of their businesses. The result of this service leads to the creation of jobs and the economic growth of Florida communities.

We are sold on the advantages of living and working in this region. A strong economic base, excellent work ethic and favorable cost of living: Florida is a great place to grow your business.
