The City of College Station recognizes the dedicated professionals of College Station Utilities and Utility Customer Service during Public Power Week.
The 37th anniversary of Public Power Week is a nationwide celebration of public power’s value to its communities. The event honors the thousands of men and women across the United States who provide and maintain the electrical grid infrastructure and services known as public power.
More than 49 million Americans – and 5.1 million Texans – are served by community-owned energy.
College Station is one of 72 publicly owned utilities in Texas. It is among only four to receive national recognition as a Diamond-Level Reliable Public Power Provider from the American Public Power Association. Utilities receiving the designation are among the nation’s best in reliability, safety, workforce development, and system improvement.
The employees of CSU and Utility Customer Service are the foundation for the reliable service and electric system infrastructure that allows our community to develop and grow. Programs available in College Station through our electric utility include Energy Back II A/C Rebate, LED Lighting Rebate, Connected Thermostat Rebate, Commercial LED Rebate, and free energy audits.
As we observe Public Power Week, we sincerely thank the employees at College Station Utilities and Utility Customer Service for their hard work, professionalism, and the invaluable service they provide to our community every day.
