Online video series tells stories of joint action founders in Florida


From the February 27, 2013 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published February 27, 2013

Founders and early leaders of Florida's joint action electricity agency tell the stories of the organization's defining moments in a series of new online videos. The Florida Municipal Power Agency released the three brief videos on its website on Feb. 25 as part of its 35th anniversary celebration.

Locally owned electric utilities in Florida met for the first time on Feb. 24, 1978, to found an organization that would give customers the home power advantage of a local utility, backed by the resources of a statewide organization.

"For 35 years, working together has proved the best way for Florida's municipal electric utilities to maximize home power benefits, like reliability, service, local investment and accountability, for the mutual benefit of all their customers," said FMPA General Manager and CEO Nicholas P. Guarriello. "These web videos will bring our story to a new generation of public power leaders."
