As the Official Sustainability & Utility Sponsor of the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) National Campus in Lake Nona, OUC – The Reliable One brings an array of sustainable, technologically advanced solutions to the facility.

From electric-vehicle and solar-powered mobile-device charging stations to hydration stations featuring safe, great-tasting H2OUC, we’re helping USTA enhance its eco-friendly footprint. A powerful driver of economic development, OUC was part of the team to bring the $60 million, 63-acre campus to Orlando. With 100 tennis courts and dozens of programs for players of all ages and abilities – from the junior circuit to the pros – it’s the largest of its kind in the U.S. OUC continues to play an active role in the development at Lake Nona – already one of America’s fastest-growing communities and home to more than 10,000 residents, as well as the Medical City life sciences cluster where nearly 7,000 students and 5,000 employees learn and work each day.

“We are thrilled to have OUC as the Official Sustainability & Utility Sponsor of the USTA National Campus. Their involvement at the USTA National Campus from day one was pivotal in developing a new Home of American Tennis that utilized technology and sustainability to enhance the Campus’ eco-friendly footprint.”
– Daniel Malasky, General Counsel, Managing Director, Business Affairs, USTA

Amcor Rigid Plastics

Amcor Rigid Plastics

When Amcor Rigid Plastics needed to power its massive new plant near Orlando International Airport – and fast – the global industry leader relied on Orlando Utilities Commission to get the job done.

Operating on a tight deadline and working closely with Amcor executives, OUC built the infrastructure to deliver five megawatts of power to the company’s 502,000-square-foot (11.5-acre) facility. That energy, in turn, fuels the manufacturing equipment that produces a variety of plastic beverage bottles and pharmaceutical packaging.

“OUC met our timeframe to run power to the building, and their legal department was good to work with on contract-related details,” said Amcor’s Sheridan Attig, site selector and director of purchasing services. “I was pretty impressed. OUC is a good business partner.”

In addition to OUC’s award-winning power reliability, Amcor’s Orlando plant benefits from Central Florida’s rapidly growing skilled labor force, prime regional location, economic development incentives and low tax structure.

Attig’s advice for companies considering relocation is simple: “Don’t view Orlando as just a tourism capital. The utility, city and state are all available to help your business grow.”
