In addition to providing low cost reliable energy to the local communities where our projects are located, Quantum Utility Generation is committed to supporting our neighbors by transacting with local contractors and businesses, hiring qualified local labor and providing resources and financial support to make a real lasting impact for those that need our help the most. A few of the local organizations we have supported in the past include:
In collaboration with the Pasco Education Foundation, Quantum Utility Generation funded the Quantum Pasco Power Academic Scholarship. The Pasco Education Foundation, Inc. was established to increase involvement in Pasco County’s public schools, to enhance public education, to encourage imaginative and creative approaches to teaching, and to recognize and reward excellence in education. In order to ensure the Quantum Pasco scholarship was focused on the local community, Quantum limited this $1500 scholarship to the three closest high schools to the plant. The 2015 Scholarship was awarded based on an essay about the importance of education.
Quantum Auburndale Power was a sponsor of the Navy SEAL Foundation Tampa Bay Frogman Swim, a charity event to benefit the families of wounded or fallen Navy SEALs. The 5k point-to-point swim has evolved into an annual event that is an official Navy SEAL Foundation fundraiser which has raised well over one million dollars for the Foundation. The Navy SEAL Foundation has earned the coveted four-star rating from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. The Foundation has also been certified by Charities of America as a “Best in America” charity. Ninety-five cents of every dollar spent by the Navy SEAL Foundation directly supports its mission, programs and services. Quantum is proud to be a contributor to such a worthwhile cause.
