Public Power Week

We would like to thank everyone who joined us in making 2016 Public Power Week a fun event! Visitors to the utility office had an opportunity to enter our grand prize drawing and enjoy refreshments and cookies!

What is Public Power Week?

Each year, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities across the United States, including Westby Utilities, observe Public Power Week – a celebration of not-for-profit electric utilities that proudly serve the electric power needs of approximately 40 million Americans.

Every public power system is different due to its community’s population, geography and climate, natural resources, economic and social resources and challenges, and local government structure and goals. 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.
