KEYS RECEIVES FMEA RESTORING COMMUNITIES AWARD

04/24/2017 ~ The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) recently recognized Keys Energy Services (KEYS) with a “Restoring Communities Award” for its efforts to quickly and safely restore power to Florida communities in the aftermaths of Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew. KEYS was among 20 Florida municipal electric utilities honored for their work to restore power within their communities and for sending aid to their fellow municipal electric utilities. Utilities were awarded based on restoration times, customer communications efforts, and the levels of mutual aid provided.

KEYS received its award at the 17th annual Florida Lineman Competition on April 22nd in Lakeland.

“Our members have been standing side-by-side for 75 years and that history of service to one another really shone through when we were facing the tough challenges of two back-to-back hurricanes and widespread power outages,” said Amy Zubaly, FMEA Interim Executive Director. “It’s that spirit of collaboration, cooperation, and community that we are honoring today with these awards.”

About FMEA: The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) represents the unified interests of 34 public power communities across the state, which provide electricity to more than 3-million of Florida’s residential and business consumers.
