CITY OF BUSHNELL - YOUR HOMETOWN ELECTRIC UTILITY PROVIDER

As your municipal Electric Provider, the City of Bushnell is well aware that safe and reliable electricity is essential to our community and part of what makes our city a great place to live and work. As a community-owned utility - a utility that is owned by the customers we serve - we also know how important it is to stay close to our customers and provide them with the personal touch only a hometown utility can offer.

Your Electric Utility provides that personal touch in many ways. Revenues from the Electric Fund makes financial contributions to the City's General Fund that helps to support valuable services and amenities
to the citizens, like the Fall Festival, the Kenny Dixon Sports Complex, Parks and Recreation ball fields and basketball courts, paved Streets and Police protection. It's neighbors serving neighbors,
a community serving family and friends.

The City of Bushnell is part of a statewide alliance with other consumer owned utilities around Florida. By combining our utility's strengths with the strengths of like-minded utilities, we are working together for the mutual benefit of our customers. This combination of community power and statewide strength makes the City of Bushnell, like other municipal electric providers, able competitors and valuable community assets. Ultimately, it serves the highest goal of making the Bushnell community a better place to live and work, and further enforces the City of Bushnell motto,
"Committed to the Quality of Life".
