12/11/2015 ~ On December 31, 2015, Keys Energy Servicesí (KEYS) David D. Price, will retire after 33-years of continuous service to the Utility.

Price was originally hired in 1983 when the Utility was named City Electric System. During his tenure he held various positions within the Utility, including Service Dispatcher, Load Dispatcher, Power System Coordinator, Engineering Field Representative, Engineering Technician, Engineering Supervisor, and Assistant Director of Electrical Operations, prior to completing his career as Director of Transmission & Distribution.

When asked about his most memorable experience at KEYS, Price cited working long hours in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew to restore power to the residents of Homestead. On a personal note, he recalled finding out he was going to be a father for the first time while on the job and announcing it over the public address system at the Key West Steam Plant. Among the biggest changes he has witnessed was the connection of the Transmission Line (TIELINE) to the mainland the subsequent improvements of reliability to KEYS system.

In reminiscing about his time at KEYS Price said he will miss seeing his co-workers every day, many of whom have grown into great friends and are considered like family. As for the secret to his longevity, he credits taking pride in the work done during his tenure and knowing the system is much safer, stronger, and advanced than when he first started at the Utility.

Price and his wife of 33-years, Miriam, raised their children David and Kaylynn in Key West. In retirement, Price plans travel, renovate his home, and taking up a fishing hobby he had to give up as his schedule filled up. After a 33-year career at KEYS, he has more than earned the right to chart his own course in the years ahead.
