About Florida Municipal Power Agency
We Represent Florida’s Hometown Utilities
LOCALLY OWNED UTILITIES ARE OWNED BY THE CITIES THEY SERVE
When you turn on the lights or plug in your favorite gadgets, you’re not thinking about where the electricity comes from. You might be surprised to learn that the type of electric utility you’re served by makes a difference in the quality of life in your community.
One type of electric utility is known as a municipal utility. These hometown utilities are unique because they are owned by the cities they serve. Their friendly local employees provide reliable electricity and personal service. Their not-for-profit rates and community re-investments keep money in the local community. And utility decisions are made at local, public meetings where customers have access and influence into the decision-making process.
