Utility celebrates Public Power Week
Sturgeon Bay Utilities is celebrating the importance of public power Oct. 4-10, during Public Power Week, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a nonprofit basis to 45 million Americans.
“Public Power Week honors Sturgeon Bay Utilities hometown service,” said Jim Stawicki, General Manager. “As a public power community, we are locally-owned and customer-focused, dedicated to community choice and community control.”
Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association, the national service organization for community and state-owned electric utilities in Washington, D.C. Public Power Week supports the ongoing theme “Public Power: An American Tradition that Works.” This year marks the 23rd anniversary of Public Power Week as a country-wide program for local citizens and other key publics, including state and national officials.
SBU invites community members to participate in a variety of Public Power Week events. Activities include:
SBU will be doing a LED (light emitting diode) holiday light exchange program for residential customers. Bring in 1 string of working incandescent holiday lights, and SBU will give you 2 strings of energy-saving LED holiday lights. The lights are multi-colored, 25 ft. strings. SBU will recycle all holiday lights exchanged. 1 exchange per residential customer. Offer good while supplies last.
Customers may also sign up at our office to win one of three electric grills or $25 dollar bill credits that will be given away as door prizes.
We encourage you to visit us for refreshments and other goodies to be given away.
“Sturgeon Bay Utilities continues to be an advocate for our customers and their needs, employing the highest standards of service as they align with the principles of public power,” said Jim Stawicki.
