How much do you know about the Lake Worth Electric Utility?

You may be surprised when you read the “audacious” quote (see below) from Lisa Maxwell. 

Use this link to watch the video of the Joint Work Session with the Electric Utility Advisory Board and the Lake Worth City Commission held on June 13th. The meeting is 1½ hours and full of important and very timely information.

To learn more about the City of Lake Worth’s Electric Utility use this link.

So. What is the Mission and Vision for our City’s Electric Utility?

“The goal is to have a model City which has sustainable sources of energy that are diverse and that are in keeping with concerns about climate change and are Green.
     We’ve already gone light years ahead of other cities with our Solar Farm, the possibility of having our [ocean] waves used,* the research scientists are involved with that, all renewable sources of energy, so we believe we can be a laboratory, really globally, for what it looks like in this day and age to generate power for communities.
    We’ve really taken on a rather audacious goal and we think the City can, in fact, reflect those kinds of goals. We already have.

Quote by Lisa Maxwell, Chair of the Electric Utility Advisory Board at the Joint Work Session with the Lake Worth City Commission, July 13th, 2017.

*News from February 16th, still unreported in The Palm Beach Post, about the prospect of City of Lake Worth becoming research and development “epicenter” of Ocean Wave Energy Generation worldwide. 
Audacious, adjective: “extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; highly inventive”.
     Used in a sentence: “An audacious vision and mission for the New City of Lake Worth and the City’s bright future ahead.”
