Hurricane Ian

NWRDC takes hurricane season very seriously, with preparations beginning well prior to June 1st each year.  When a storm is identified as having a potential Florida landfall, NWRDC’s management team initiates our storm readiness plan.  We have been closely monitoring the progression and track of Hurricane Ian and will continue to do so as it approaches Florida this week.

Please note:  Our administrative offices will be closed Thursday, 9/29 and Friday, 9/30.  On-call staff will be available as normal.  As always, NWRDC is ready to assist our customers throughout the state as needed.  

Questions?  We're here to help. If you experience issues or have any questions, please contact Operations at (850)645-3500 or

NWRDC Customers Receive Benefit from Administrative Cost Savings

Northwest Regional Data Center is pleased to announce the completion of our annual true-up process for FY 2020-2021, which has resulted in savings of $223,659 for our customers!  As last fiscal year’s actual administrative expenses were substantially less than the 14% budgeted, NWRDC will be issuing customer credits for the difference.  Individual credits will be calculated based on each customer’s proportion of sales for FY 2020-2021.  These credits may be used on either current or future invoices, but must be used before June 30, 2022.  Look for an email from us with your credit memo in January!
