Florida Public Service Commission

The Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC), a state agency, sets the rates utility companies charge for natural gas, water, wastewater, and electricity. The FPSC partners with schools in an ongoing educational effort to promote energy awareness during the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Awareness Program (annually in October) and to promote water conservation during the American Water Works Association’s National Drinking Water Week (annually in May).

Water Wiser, a Water Conservation Awareness Progra...

Program description

An original play, Water Wiser, encourages students to think about our drinking water and the need to conserve it. A question and answer session encourages students to discuss water as a resource and the importance of conservation. The FPSC has also developed a “water experience” to demonstrate how much water may be lost as a result of something as simple as a leaky faucet.
