You guys are good! Everyone who responded to last month’s quiz provided the right answer (i.e., NC Public Power began on February 4, 1889 in Statesville). But only the fastest of the bunch took home the prize ($100 in P4 funds). The three winners include: Chris Smith, Public Utilities Director for Lexington; Sherri Williams, Information and Resources Specialist for the City of Kinston; and Don Mitchell, Director of Energy Services for Monroe. Thanks to everyone who played and congrats to our winners!
With spring knocking on the door, you’re likely itching to fling that door open to get outside for a rush of excitement. For a little direction, open your NC Public Power calendar first.

Not ready to make the jump? Then check out the calendar’s website – electricities.com/adventure – for a video. While you’re there, visit our new Economic Development site, too.
