11/17/2008 ~ The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) recently honored the community service efforts of Keys Energy Services (KEYS) by recognizing the municipal electric utility with the 2008 Community Service Award.
Honored during a ceremony at FMEA’s annual Energy Connections Conference & Trade Show in Jacksonville, Fla., KEYS received the award for its commitment to enhancing its customers’ quality of life through community-improvement programs such as their annual Tree Giveaway, environmental initiatives to reduce green house gases, and ongoing involvement and support of numerous school/youth-related activities and programs throughout their service area.
“Being a part of the community is about more than making sure the lights are on,” said FMEA Executive Director Barry Moline. “The recipients of the 2008 FMEA Community Service Awards excel in not only taking an interest in seeing their communities succeed, but also actively work toward making them better places to live.”
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 two million of Florida’s residential and business consumers.
