About Overview

Who We Are

Florida Municipal Power Agency (FMPA) is a wholesale power agency owned by municipal electric utilities

FMPA’s mission is to provide power that is competitively priced, reliable and clean, as well as provide value-added services for its owner-customers.

Benefits of FMPA

Municipal electric utilities are locally owned and operated, but they work together on common needs

The benefits of working together include:

Economies of Scale: By coordinating their power needs, local utilities can build larger, more efficient power plants and diversify their power sources.

Access to Resources: FMPA members have access to the resources of a statewide organization, including FMPA’s professional staff and more than two dozen services.

Strength in Numbers: Working together enables municipal utilities to pool their resources in beneficial ways, such as planning, operating, negotiating, advocating and more.

Municipal electric utilities formed FMPA in 1978 to create competitive options and capture economies of scale in wholesale power supply.

History

FMPA was formed so local utilities could control their power supply future

Municipal electric utilities in the 1970s had few options for wholesale power supply. They formed FMPA in 1978 to create options for their future. Since then, FMPA members have worked on behalf of their customers to achieve many successes, such as:

  • Helping municipals stay competitive with cost-effective generation and services
  • Providing competition in the wholesale market to drive down costs
  • Winning the right to jointly own nuclear generation
  • Winning equal rights in electric transmission service
