OUC to Celebrate Public Power Week

Sep 30, 2011

OUC will celebrate Public Power Week, Oct. 2-8, joining the more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 46 million Americans.

As part of Public Power Week, OUC is reminding customers of low- and no-cost ways to protect the environment and save on utility expenses by being energy efficient (see below).

Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association (APPA) in Washington, D.C. A tradition that began in 1986, this year APPA and its members celebrate its 25th anniversary. APPA is the service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.
