Affordable power and responsible energy policies. They go hand-in-hand. As local institutions, public power utilities are uniquely positioned to help communities create wise energy policies. They also recognize an obligation to safeguard not just the environment, but regional energy resources and the economic wellbeing of the communities they serve, too.
That’s why public power utilities invest in clean energy alternatives and renewable resources like solar, wind and biogas. And why they offer energy-saving programs, education, online tools and even cash incentives to help businesses and residents use energy smartly.
For locally owned public power utilities, environmental stewardship is just part of making the community a great place to live, work and play.
