Ocala Electric Utility Wins FMEA Building Strong Communities Award
The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) recently honored the community service efforts of Ocala Electric Utility (OEU) by recognizing the municipal electric utility with the 2017 Building Strong Communities Award.
Honored during the Building Strong Communities luncheon at FMEA’s annual Energy Connections Conference and Trade Show in St. Augustine on November 8, OEU received the award for its commitment to enhancing its customers’ quality of life through various community improvement programs.
“Being a part of the community is about more than making sure the lights are on,” said FMEA Executive Director Amy Zubaly. “The recipients of the 2017 FMEA Building Strong Communities Awards excel in not only taking an interest in seeing their communities succeed, but also actively working toward making them better places to live and building strong communities.”
