The current KWH is $0.06554 and provided by Nextera Energy (formerly Gexa Energy). The city is currently renegotiating a new contract with the service provider to obtain a lower rate. The utilities category includes water, electricity, natural gas and telecommunications. In the proposed FY 11-12, General Fund budget, $4,100,000 is budgeted for electricity, $250,000 for natural gas and $495,000 for water. The remaining balance is for telecommunications.

A municipal energy usage report is published every year and can be found on the city's website in the Financial Services department.
