Greener Communities, Greener World Web site Launched
Orlando, Fla., Jan. 15, 2009 – The Florida Municipal Power Agency (FMPA) launched a new Web site to showcase the Agency’s strategic initiative to find solutions for today’s environmental challenges. The site, located at http://green.fmpa.com, describes the Agency’s efforts to increase clean energy sources, promote energy conservation and expand green practices in FMPA’s work environment.
“This Web site describes how we’re developing a clean, secure and sustainable energy future while continuing to provide reliable, affordable electricity,” said Interim General Manager Nick Guarriello. “FMPA and its member cities are proud to do our part to conserve energy and protect the environment, and even prouder to share our efforts with the communities we serve.”
FMPA is a wholesale power agency owned by municipal electric utilities in Florida. FMPA provides all the wholesale power needs of 15 cities, including Bushnell, Clewiston, Fort Meade, Fort Pierce, Green Cove Springs, Town of Havana, Jacksonville Beach, Key West, Kissimmee, Lake Worth, Leesburg, Newberry, Ocala, Starke and Vero Beach.
FMPA’s strategic initiative, called “Greener Communities, Greener World,” was launched in March 2008 to renew and reinvigorate the Agency’s commitment to move forward with environmentally responsible efforts. The intent of the initiative is to focus efforts on this important goal, take green efforts to a new level and communicate to the public.
