Forming a Municipal Utility: The City of Winter Park, Florida Experience

Randy Knight, City Manager, Winter Park, FL

Speaker Bio

Randy Knight was the lead staff member in the efforts by the City of Winter Park, Florida to municipalize beginning in 2000. Despite opposition from the local utility (Progress Energy Florida), the municipalization effort passed with 69% of the vote in September 2003. After issuing Requests for Proposala (RFP’s) for power supply and management of the distribution system, the City of Winter Park began supplying community-owned power on June 1, 2005. Since becoming a municipal utility, significant strides have been made in reliability improvements including placing over 7 miles of mainline feeders underground and completing 5 neighborhood undergrounding projects.
