KISSIMMEE — Kissimmee Utility Authority has released its 2024 Calendar of Energy Conservation, a bilingual calendar in English and Spanish, featuring the winning entries from its 30th annual student art contest.

The calendar, available free of charge at the utility’s customer service center at 1701 W. Carroll Street in Kissimmee, features helpful energy conservation tips and incorporates the Osceola County School District calendar for convenient planning.
