OUC hosted more than 25 state municipal and investor-owned utilities at Reliable Plaza and via video conference for a day-long roundtable event to discuss the current and future states of electric vehicles in Florida. The group heard from Commissioner Britta Gross and Clint Bullock, General Manager & CEO, on OUC’s commitment to encouraging EV adoption in our service area. Representatives from OUC, Duke Energy and Florida Power & Light also presented on the state’s readiness for rapid EV growth, corridor planning, Florida policy, and joint Florida initiatives.
“OUC has worked for years to ready our service territory for electric vehicles,” said Pete Westlake, Manager of Sustainability Programs. “Now, we want to focus on getting our customers comfortable with taking the plunge, and working with our partners around the state is vital to our efforts.”
