ESG/Ethical Impact

Being good stewards of the environment means we care for the land, air, water, and wildlife in the community we serve. Kissimmee Utility Authority protects these resources while meeting our customers’ demand for electric service. Below are some of the ways we carry out this responsibility. Waste reduction and recycling For KUA, landfills are a last resort. In our utility operations, we recycle used tires, oil and batteries from our fleet vehicles. We also recycle PCB-free oils along with scrap metals such as wire and old transformers. In our offices, we recycle everyday items like paper, cardboard, bottles and cans. Electricity generation Our Cane Island Power Park uses natural gas as its primary fuel source. This is a cleaner-burning fuel that reduces the impact on the air we breathe. In addition, our new community solar program will provide access to locally-generated solar energy for our customers – just one example of how Kissimmee is leading in the field of clean and renewable energy Keeping birds safe Keeping birds out of our electrical equipment and preventing the outages that sometimes result is an ongoing effort. At our power plant, for example, we maintain bird diverters on our high-voltage transmission lines. The lines are located near a heron rookery and the bird diverters generate a vibrating noise which provides an audible warning to the birds to prevent their collision with the lines. Wildlife protection KUA maintains wildlife covers on assorted equipment, inside substations and on overhead feeders to protect our electrical grid from incidental contact by wildlife. These ongoing enhancements are expected to reduce wildlife related outages by more than 50% and protect the wildlife that makes their home in this area of Central Florida.
