Tampa Electric Awarded EEI’s 2015 Edison Award

Tampa Electric received the Edison Electric Institute's (EEI's) 2015 Edison Award, the electric power industry's highest honor, for its design and construction of a reclaimed water system at its Polk Power Station in Polk County, Florida. Tampa Electric designed and built a reclaimed water-treatment project that offers environmental benefits to Hillsborough and Tampa bays. It is the first power plant in the United States to combine the use of reclaimed water and reverse-osmosis technology with deep-well disposal of wastewater, and it will benefit local wetlands and the surrounding communities.
