Celebrating the Value of Public Power

Public Power Week is all about spotlighting and celebrating the value that locally owned and operated electric service provides our communities—value like unmatched reliability, excellent local service, and essential local jobs. Public Power Week 2022 is Oct. 2-8.

Below you’ll find loads of resources to help spread the word about that value and all the ways public power is Powering Our Community’s Future.

If you have questions or need help with any of the resources, contact us at communications@electricities.org.

We’d love to hear about how you and your team are helping to move public power forward, so remember to share your Public Power Week success stories with us.
