My Electric bill is 16 days late and they shut our Electric off. We have NEVER Missed paying every month for the past 12 Years and this is what happened. We own our home and we will on our next home were moving to an area that Is NOT Peace River Elec.. Poor Service plus lack of caring even a little bit. But we put up with outages at any given tI'm and there can be sunny skies and it go out. Worst service all the way around! Note: we paid the bill in full immediately and now they say we may Not have electric up until 5 pm. Unreal!

I will NEVER as long as I live move into Peace River's district ever again. Even if the house was free. The WORST ever.

This company is a monopoly they know it and treat customers poorly because they know they can. One day there will be a choice in this county and they will run out if business. FPL was an amazing experience and very customer friendly. It really is a shame the way this company is ran I mean every company has a ceo I can only imagine the customer service training is a joke. Wake up peace river karma is real. Your overcharging will be answered one day in court.

Absolutely horrible electric company! Prices are extremely high (twice as much as what you would pay with FPL). In addition, 30 minutes to an hour to speak with customer service, who are not the nicest.

Awful customer service and holds times exceed 30 minutes. They switched over to a new system, I tried to register and ended up late paying my bill by one day and they shut my power off then charged me to reconnect. When comparing to bills from FPL, Peace River is twice as much. There is no other option to go with so they know they have a monopoly--RIP OFF COMPANY!!

Peace River is the worst Monopoly in Florida. They are incompetent and steal from their customers. The customer service is the worst. Stay far away from this pathetic evil company.
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.
