At Tampa Electric, our core value is the safety of our people, our customers and our community.

In everything we do, we are committed to cultivating a world-class safety culture – whether through proper training and safeguards for our employees and contractors, investing in the well-being of our customers, or being a safe, reliable and environmentally responsible partner in the communities we serve.
