Each year, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities, like Black River Falls Municipal Utilities, across the nation observe Public Power Week – a celebration of these not-for-profit electric utilities that proudly serve the electric power needs of about 40 million Americans – or almost 15 percent of electricity consumers.
Every public power system is different due to its community’s population, geography and climate, natural resources, economic and social resources and challenges, and local government structure and goals. However, all public power systems have in common their purpose: to provide adequate, reliable, not-for-profit electricity at a reasonable price with proper protection of the environment.
We would like to thank everyone who joined us in making our recent Public Power Week event a big success. Congratulations to Wayne Marsh, winner of the grand prize, a Neuton Cordless Electric Lawn Mower, and to all of our other prize winners.
