We Think About Electricity So You Don’t Have To

Florida’s locally owned utilities are so reliable that customers often take for granted that the lights will come on when they flip the switch

But it’s not as simple as it looks. Beyond the light switch, there is a complex network of people, plants and power lines that assures the electricity stays on around the clock every day of the year.

FMPA’s member utilities decided many years ago that the generation of electricity was too important to leave to someone else. That’s why they worked together to form FMPA, so that communities of all sizes could control their power supply future.

FMPA supplies all the power needs of 13 utilities and some of the power needs for seven other cities. A few members do not purchase any power from FMPA. Overall, FMPA supplies more than 40% of its members’ total power needs.
