Vermillion Light & Power (VL&P) is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 2-8, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for profit basis to 46 million Americans.
"Public Power Week is a chance for VL&P to articulate why the public power formula works in Vermillion. We are absolutely dedicated to providing top-notch service and the lowest rates possible," said Mark Koller, VL&P superintendent.
Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association (APPA) in Washington, DC. A tradition that began in 1986, this year APPA and its members celebrate its 25th anniversary. APPA is the service organization for community and state owned electric utilities.
Vermillion Light & Power invites community members to participate in a variety of Public Power Week 25th anniversary events. Activities include:
- Lunch on Oct. 14 – (Brats, burgers, chips, cookies and pop) – along with give-aways.
"Vermillion Light & Power knows how vital electricity is for the people of Vermillion, and we continue to find ways to deliver it reliably, safely and with special attention to the environment," Koller said.
