Each year, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities, like Florence Utilities, across the nation observe Public Power Week during the first full week of October. Public Power Week is a celebration of these not-for-profit electric utilities that proudly serve the electric power needs of about 49 million Americans - or 1 in 7 nationwide electric consumers.
Every public power system is different due to its community's population, geography, climate, natural resources, economy, and local government structure. 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.
Florence Utilities will celebrate the importance of public power during Public Power Week, October 7-11, 2019.
Stop in the week of October 7th for refreshments and a free gift!
