Florida public power utility OUC on June 26 was honored for a century of reliable service to Central Florida with a proclamation declaring "OUC 100th Anniversary Day."
The announcement was made by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
From serving 2,795 customers in 1923 to more than a quarter of a million customers today, OUC, now the 14th largest municipal utility in the nation and the 2nd largest in the state, “has played an integral role in supporting the growth of Central Florida by investing in cutting-edge energy generation and water delivery innovations, all while meeting the community's demand for quality and accessibility,” OUC noted in a news release.
“Since the day OUC was founded, we have innovated and evolved to meet the needs of our customers and our community, and we will never stray from our commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Clint Bullock, General Manager and CEO, in a statement. “Our dedicated employees, those who came before us and those who are here today, make that commitment possible. We are well-positioned to meet the future needs and expectations of the community, and we remain dedicated to being a partner of choice and a leader of innovative solutions.”
"In Orlando, we are fortunate to have a municipal-owned utility that is truly part of our community and has always been focused on serving residents and businesses to ensure that Orlando is a great place to live, do business and visit," said Dyer.
