ORLANDO – OUC – The Reliable One received the Sustainability and Resiliency Award and the Award of Excellence in Downtown Orlando Partnership’s 2024 Golden Brick Awards, which recognize people, projects and initiatives that propel downtown Orlando forward.

OUC was honored in the Sustainability and Resiliency category for opening one of the largest electric vehicle charging stations in the state, the Robinson ReCharge Mobility Hub. Located in the heart of downtown Orlando, the Robinson Hub features 21 high-speed chargers that make EV charging accessible and convenient to increase the city’s EV readiness and improve air quality.

OUC also received the Award of Excellence for its OUC100 campaign – a year-long celebration that highlighted the utility’s 100-year history of providing safe, dependable, affordable electric and water service to Central Florida.

“As we come to the end of our centennial anniversary year, OUC is proud to be acknowledged by the Downtown Orlando Partnership for the contributions we’ve made – and will continue to make – to this community that we’re deeply invested in,” said Clint Bullock, General Manager and CEO at OUC. “As the city’s hometown utility, we remain steadfast in our mission to continue innovating for a brighter, greener future for generations to come.”

OUC has several projects in the works to keep pace with electric and water demand as the city of Orlando grows, and to work towards its goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. A second high-speed EV charging facility is under construction at the Orange County Convention Center South Concourse parking lot. The utility is also currently building two 74.5 MW solar farms and recently installed a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to improve grid resiliency. In 2025, OUC will begin construction on an alternative water supply project known as the Southeast Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant.
