Electric Transmission & Distribution
Public power utilities, like Fort Pierce Utilities Authority, are especially mindful of the fact that reliability is as important as maintaining low rates. The Electric Transmission and Distribution Department is responsible for the operation, construction, and maintenance of our electrical system in order to provide safe, timely, and reliable service. This department is also responsible for the transmission and distribution of electric power from internal and external power sources to the customer.
We also work with and advise the Electric Engineering Department of needed system extensions and upgrades and assist in the planning and design of those systems.
We oversee the Meter Reading Department, which is responsible for reading the meters of all systems including electric, gas, and water.
