The Environment and Sustainability

At TECO Energy, our business is to serve the present and future energy needs of our customers with reliable and affordable energy in a responsible manner. We do so while delivering shareholder value and maintaining our commitment to protect and enhance our environment.

We realize this commitment through the many ways we're looking ahead, investing in clean-energy technologies and partnering with our customers to create a more sustainable community. From renewable energy to alternative fuel vehicles, we're making it easier for customers to reduce their carbon footprints. The emission-reduction measures at our power stations have significantly improved the air quality of West Central Florida. And the millions of visitors the Manatee Viewing Center has hosted have seen up close our dedication to habitat restoration, protecting endangered species and working to ensure that generations to come can enjoy the natural Florida we all cherish. So, get the facts about our stewardship and learn more about our environmental story.

Electric vehicles (EVs)

EVs are another way our product is helping the environment. Exhaust emissions from a typical EV are much lower than those from gasoline-powered or diesel vehicles.
