FPU owns and operates electric utility assets across four counties in Florida, distributing electricity to approximately 32,000 customers through our Northeast division in Fernandina Beach, and our Northwest division in Marianna, Florida.
Our employees are committed to safety every day. In 2018, Hurricane Michael passed through our electric distribution operation’s service territory in Northwest Florida. The hurricane caused widespread, severe damage to FPU’s infrastructure, resulting in electrical service loss to all customers in our Northwest Florida service territory. Within the first week following the storm, we restored critical medical facilities, several schools, essential services and commercial facilities. In less than a month, all customers who could receive service were restored.
