KISSIMMEE, Fla., November 1, 2007 – Kissimmee Utility Authority’s 2006 annual report this week received the top award in a national annual report contest conducted by the American Public Power Association (APPA).
The awards were judged based on the effectiveness of the written text, design, financial data, creativity, graphics, organization and communication of the utility’s story.
KUA’s annual report, titled “What You Don’t See,” earned the Award of Excellence among electric utilities with gross annual revenues of $75-$199 million.
The 26-page report exposes the otherwise invisible aspects of electricity and the electricity business. The report is available online at http://www.kua.com/corporate.
The award was presented Oct. 30 to KUA by APPA president and CEO Alan Richardson at the association’s annual Customer Connections Conference in Seattle, Wash. A list of the contest winners can be found online at http://www.appanet.org/files/PDFs/2007PressReleaseWinners.pdf.
