KISSIMMEE — Kissimmee Utility Authority has earned a Smart Energy Provider (SEP) designation from the American Public Power Association for demonstrating a commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support the goal of providing safe, reliable, low-cost, and sustainable electric service. KUA was presented the designation on Oct. 26 in Scottsdale, Arizona during APPA’s annual Customer Connections Conference.
The SEP designation, which lasts for two years (Dec. 1, 2021 to Nov. 30, 2023), recognizes public power utilities for demonstrating leading practices in four key disciplines: smart energy program structure; energy efficiency and distributed energy programs; environmental and sustainability initiatives; and customer experience. KUA is one of more than 90 public power utilities nationwide that hold the SEP designation. KUA also earned the SEP designation in 2019.
“We are honored to be recognized as a utility at the cutting edge of smart energy best practices,” said Brian Horton, President and General Manager of KUA. “This SEP designation represents our dedication to offering programs that help our customers save money, reduce our collective environmental impact, and support our community’s responsible energy use.”
