Doing business with Tampa Electric or Peoples Gas, TECO Energy companies

Tampa Electric and Peoples Gas carefully evaluate potential suppliers on the following criteria:

  • Quality

If we do not have a current need for your products or services, your information will be kept on file for 12 months.
