DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Public Utilities, a subsidiary of Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK), is quite possibly the most incompetent utility company operating in South Florida. If you enjoy natural gas in the region, odds are it is delivered by Florida Public Utilities. But have you ever needed service? Good luck. BocaNewsNow.com spent hours Thursday dealing with a call center in Fernandina Beach and another in DeBary where rep after rep claimed “we don’t know where our techs are. They sometimes have to respond to emergencies, so it’s impossible to know when someone becomes available.”
Consider this: Rooms To Go, City Furniture, Comcast, FPL, and pretty much every other customer facing organization in the free world strives to provide customer service within a window of time. Comcast even markets service windows. So how is it that Florida Public Utilities, which has to answer to the Florida Public Service Commission, gets away with saying “we’ll be there when we’re there, you’ll just have to wait, even it takes a full day?” This is a company that provides the only pathway to gas service in much of Florida. Their customer service representatives apparently are trained to provide excuses instead of service. This must change.

**Update: We finally found the private email of a senior customer service supervisor who solved the issue. But it shouldn’t take a background in investigative journalism to solve a gas company customer service deficiency. While the tech, once he finally arrived, was professional, FPUC clearly has a dispatch, customer service, call center, or overall crew management problem that must be resolved.
