Chesapeake Utilities expands propane service in Florida

December 22, 2022 By    

Florida Public Utilities (FPU), a subsidiary of Chesapeake Utilities Corp., acquired the propane operating assets of Hernando Gas, based in Hernando, Florida.

Through the acquisition, Chesapeake Utilities expands its operating footprint further into Florida, where customers will be served by FPU.

“Propane’s reliability, versatility and superior performance make it a fuel of choice for many Floridians,” says Jeff Householder, president and CEO of Chesapeake Utilities. “We are confident that FPU will provide our new propane customers with the same exceptional service that they have been accustomed to receiving.”

FPU and its sister company Sharp Energy serve customers in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida and maintain local offices in the areas served to better support customers and communities.

“This is a strategic acquisition for our company as it enables Florida Public Utilities to expand the availability of our Florida propane operations closer to the Tampa market,” says Andy Hesson, vice president of Sharp Energy.

Headquartered in Yulee, Florida, FPU distributes natural gas and propane and provides electric services to customers in markets throughout Florida.

Chesapeake Utilities Corp. is a diversified energy delivery company that provides natural gas transmission and distribution, electricity generation and distribution, propane gas distribution, mobile compressed natural gas utility services and solutions, and other businesses.
