You can tell the employees they hire are not the brightest people. Watch the lineman work. You can tell there not the sharpest tools in the shed. New smart meters are smart at charging you more money.

A line broke and damaged both my cars. They blamed it on a bird. After talking to some of the lineman's and office employees you can tell they are not that bright. You can tell the people they hire are not very intelligent. They lied and refused to fix my cars.

Was forced to use Gulf Power because they had a contract with the apartment I rented. They did not properly close my account and charged me for a month I was not living there. When I told them this, they did not care, but wasted my time through email telling me how they would not help me. I was traveling with the military and they took advantage of my situation to make them more money. Very unprofessional.

Thermoset not working correctly. shows time 72 degree and fan stays on. sometimes I can manually turn it off but not always. I am or was on energy saving. Unfortunately, at age 89, I can't read the really small letters or whatever I was asked. i can't reset this or whatever is necessarily. I have had tenants in the house the last two years so I don't know what they might have change. Can't someone come out and set this up? I did have someone come out when I first sign up which was four or five years ago.

Definitely check put the Energy Select program if you are a homeowner. If you monitor how and when you use electricity , you can save some bucks. Also, we had frequent power outages due to squirrels. After numerous outages , an engineer came out and required our street, virtually eliminating outages and strengthening our delivery system. All poles and wires replaced. And , no more exploding squirrels. Great effort on GPs part.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
