Public Power Week is a national event that takes place during the first full week of October each year. It provides an opportunity to acknowledge the more than 2,000 locally owned, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide power to 48 million homes and businesses across the U.S.
The week of October 2 – 6, Oconto Falls Municipal Utilities hosted an event to celebrate Public Power Week and connect with the community. People who stopped in at the Utility Billing office received free LED Christmas lights and cookies. In addition, anyone donating 3 non-perishable food items for the Kingdom Come Food Pantry received an entry in a drawing for one of two energy conservation gift baskets. The drawing will be held Monday, November 20, so there is still time to get your entry.
“Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of having local ownership and control of our community’s own electric utility,” said Greg Kuhn, Utility Manager. “Our service is customer-focused, reliable and safe, and we take pride in serving our friends and neighbors.”
Established in 1932, Oconto Falls Municipal Utilitiestoday provides electric, water, and wastewater services to homes and businesses in the City of Oconto Falls.
