Gulf Power management and employees are no doubt feeling proud tonight over a recent honor.
A new customer survey found Gulf Power is the second most trusted electric company in the nation, and third most trusted utility overall.
The rankings come from Cogent Report, a division of Market Strategies International.
Cogent surveyed 19,000 residential utility customers of the 125 largest natural gas, electric and combination utilities earlier this year.
The survey measured six categories including concern for customers, company reputation, credibility, dedication, environmental performance and community involvement.
Out of a possible 1,000 points, Gulf Power scored 722 points, two-points shy of the top electric company, Florida Power and Light.
Oklahoma Natural Gas was rated the most trusted gas utility and second overall with a score of 723.
