Staff recommends approval of the Amended and Restated Territorial Agreement with Sumter Electric Cooperative, Inc..
Electric utilities in Florida are required to maintain service territory agreements with neighboring electric utilities in an effort to reduce uneconomic duplication of service facilities. The original Territorial Agreement between Leesburg and SECO, dated February 15, 1991, delineated the service boundary between the utilities and the Agreement was then submitted to the Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) and became effective on the date approved by the FPSC.
With oversight from their respective legal counsel, Leesburg and SECO staff have reviewed the locations currently served by each utility and find it is in the best interests of both utilities to adjust the current service territory boundary to more accurately reflect currently served customers and to minimize the number of customers transferred from one utility to the other.
Changes resulting from the revised boundary are as follows:
1. Leesburg to retain 17 residential customers on Spring Lake Road north of CR 466A.
2. SECO to retain 13 residential customers on Harris Road
3. SECO to transfer 3 residential customers to Leesburg
a. Two customers on CR 466A (one location is currently inactive)
The attached map further clarifies the general locations of these customers.
1. Approve the Amended and Restated Territorial Agreement, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Leesburg will extend distribution facilities to serve the two active residential locations. Line extension costs to serve new customers are included in the current budget.
