Public Power Week
Each year in October, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities across the nation, like Two Rivers Water & Light, observe Public Power Week. Public Power Week is a celebration of the not-for-profit electric utilities that proudly service the electric power needs of about 40 million Americans - or almost 15 percent of electric 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.
