Moving to a new residence takes much time and effort. One of the most important and possibly most tedious aspects of moving is activating new utility services. Fortunately, the process of getting the lights turned on in Ocoee, Florida, is relatively pain-free. Ocoee is a western suburb of Orlando situated near Lake Apopka. The Orlando Utilities Commission provides electric service to the entire region. A web-based form lets you enter all necessary information at your convenience.

Step 1

Go to the home page of the Orlando Utilities Commission (ouc.com). Click on "Residential" from the top menu. A new set of sub-menus will appear along the left side of the page.

Step 2

Click on "Customer Service" underneath the "Residential" menu along the left side of the page. A drop-down menu will appear. Choose "Service Request," and the page will load a request form.

Step 3

Fill out the form as completely as possible. The fields in red are required, while everything else is optional. Choose a service activation date that is convenient for you. Check the form for accuracy, then hit "Submit" at the bottom of the page. The Orlando Utilities Commission may require a deposit from new customers. Wait for a representative to contact you with further instructions.
