We are committed to helping our customers and employees take advantage of the latest innovative technologies to balance energy, the environment and economics. By driving an electric vehicle, you can preserve energy sources, save money on fuel and protect the environment. Our goal is to help you make a smooth transition into sustainable transportation. Tampa Electric is already working to make sustainable transportation a reality in the communities we serve.
We are proud to be the first electric utility in the country to offer an innovative energy-education program focused on teaching students about electric vehicle technology. Tampa Electric has partnered with the University of South Florida, the Center for Urban Transportation Research and local high schools to offer the Electric Vehicle and Energy Education Program.
We support Drive Electric Florida's vision to advance the energy, economic and environmental security of the state of Florida by promoting the growth of electric vehicle ownership and accompanying infrastructure.
