Tampa Electric $5M gift to USF focused on clean energy

As part of Tampa Electric’s journey toward a cleaner, smarter energy future, the company announced in August that it will invest $5 million in the University of South Florida to fund research, education and innovation that aims to reduce carbon and improve the environment. This commitment will further strengthen the longstanding relationship between the two local flagships and will help to build a resilient, healthy environment for future generations. In its effort to explore, research and develop emerging energy technologies that reduce carbon, Tampa Electric’s investment will create an endowed fund to support the Clean Energy Research Center (CERC) in USF’s College of Engineering. It is the largest single outright gift to the college.
