Each year, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities, like Cedarburg Light & Water, 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.
We are celebrating 119 years of community service with a community food drive. During the month of October, customers can stop by our office with non-perishable food items and be entered into a drawing to win an electric lawn mower, a Ring Video Doorbell or a bill credit! Non-perishable food items will benefit Ozaukee County Family Sharing.
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 reliable, not-for-profit electricity at a reasonable price with proper protection of the environment.
