Public Power Week celebrates value to community

By Pat McIntyre, CSU Energy Coordinator

The City of College Station is recognizing the dedicated professionals of College Station Utilities and Utility Customer Service during Public Power Week, which runs through Saturday.

The 31st 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. In 2016, more than 4.1 million Texans were served by community-owned power.

College Station is one of 72 publicly owned utilities in Texas and is one of only five to receive national recognition as a Reliable Public Power Provider from the American Public Power Association, which coordinates Public Power Week. Utilities receiving the designation are among the nation’s best in reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement.

The 77 employees at CSU and the 25 at 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.

The American Public Power Association represents not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities that power homes, businesses, and streets in nearly 2,000 towns and cities, serving 47 million Americans. With no divided loyalties, these utilities focus on a single mission: providing reliable electricity to the communities they serve while protecting the environment.

As we observe Public Power Week, we 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.
