Each year, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities, like Westby 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 40 million Americans - or almost 15 percent of electricity 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.
Public Power Week 2020 looked a little bit different this year! At Westby Electric & Water Utility we celebrated all month long handing out gift bags to our customers in the drive-thru and entering them in a drawing for prizes!
