Florida Public Service Commission: Earnings Surveillance Reports in Gateway

Earnings Surveillance Reports are monthly filings made to the Florida Public Service Commission to help state regulators verify that financial performance and earnings align with approved rates of return. Filings are mandatory for Duke Energy Florida, Florida Power & Light Company, Florida Public Utilities Company, Gulf Power Company, and Tampa Electric Company.

Reports are filed monthly, totaling more than 100 pages of information per utility each year. All of this data previously lived solely on the state regulator’s website. With the use of advanced AI modeling, HData has fully digitized these reports, transforming thousands of static pages into machine-readable data that users can access and download via HData's Gateway.

Data from the Earnings Surveillance Reports is highly valuable for use in benchmarking and comparison across utilities. Analysis of metrics such as operating costs, revenue per customer, return on equity, and debt ratios provide insight into relative efficiency and financial performance of each utility.
