A Clearwater firm specializing in affordable rural housing also has expertise in using energy more affordably. Their successful energy efficiency efforts have earned Flynn Management Corporation the Florida Public Service Commission’s (PSC) 2018 second quarter Triple E Award.
“Flynn Management is commended for their commitment to providing affordable housing for low-income rural Floridians,” said PSC Chairman Art Graham. “We also applaud the company for implementing energy efficiencies to help reduce operation costs and further their affordable housing mission.”
“Through our energy efficiency improvements, Duke Energy has helped us lower our usage and our monthly energy bill,” said Tom Flynn, Owner, Flynn Management Corporation. “Our goal is to preserve the properties we manage and limit our energy footprint to better serve those who need affordable housing.”
Working with Duke Energy, Flynn Management installed higher efficiency HVAC units, upgraded to LED lighting, and raised the insulation level in two office buildings. By taking advantage of Duke Energy’s Duct Test and Repair program and its Ceiling Insulation program, Flynn Management received $1,214 in incentives through Duke’s Commercial Better Business Program. Annually, these efficiency measures are expected to reduce energy usage by more than 10,000 kilowatt hours.
“By working closely with our business customers, we can discover and recommend the best ways to save them energy and money,” said Catherine Stempien, Duke Energy Florida president. “We are happy that our energy efficiency programs helped Flynn Management succeed in energy savings and in its core mission to provide affordable housing.”
Covering the state’s five major geographic areas, each quarter the PSC presents its Triple E Award to a local business that has accomplished superior energy efficiency.

The PSC encourages cost-effective conservation and renewable energy to reduce the use of fossil fuels and defer the need for new generating capacity through the Florida Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act.
