The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) today launched its “Florida Public Power: Lighting Up the Holidays” social media campaign, which showcases how public power utilities are committed to the communities and customers they serve during the holiday season.
For the remainder of this month, FMEA will share photos and graphics of Florida public power utilities assisting with and participating in community holiday activities through their Facebook page and Twitter account.
“Florida public power utilities’ connections to their communities run deep and the holiday season is one of those special times of year when public power utilities really shine. They spread holiday cheer by using their bucket trucks to help string lights and hang decorations on Main Street or in the heart of downtown. They are helping to light the town tree. Their employees are organizing toy and food drives so others’ holidays are a little bit brighter. This campaign helps to highlight how truly invested public power utilities are in their hometowns and to the people who live there,” said Amy Zubaly, FMEA Executive Director.
Florida has 33 public power utilities that serve more than 3 million people and employ 5,400 Floridians. They are locally owned, locally controlled and locally operated. Public power utilities also reinvest in their communities to support essential public services provided by the local government.
The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) represents the unified interests of 33 public power communities across the state, which provide electricity to more than 3 million of Florida’s residential and business consumers.
