Mission & Purpose

The Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC - The Reliable One) is a municipally-owned public utility providing electric and water services to the citizens of Orlando, Florida, St. Cloud, Florida, and unincorporated Orange and Osceola counties. Established in 1923 by a special act of the Florida Legislature, OUC is the second largest municipal utility in Florida and 14th largest municipal in the country. OUC provides electric, water, chilled water and/or lighting services to 400,000 accounts. The company is governed by a five-member commission (including the Mayor of Orlando), which is responsible for all operating policies. OUC has maintained the best electric reliability in the state of Florida for 21 years in a row, when compared to Florida’s investor-owned utilities. Our power is produced at the OUC-owned Stanton Energy Center via a diverse fuel portfolio, which includes nearly 20 megawatts of solar energy. And, our clean, safe, great-tasting water - which is pumped from the Lower Floridan Aquifer - undergoes more than 20,000 chemical and bacteriological water quality tests each year, including tests for more than 135 regulated and unregulated substances like lead and copper.
