Celebrating Public Power Week October 2-8

Sun Prairie Utilities is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 2-8, along with more than 2,000 other community-powered, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 49 million Americans.

“This year, we are focusing on educating the next generation of Sun Prairie Utilities customers on the benefits of public power,” said SPU Customer Service Manager Dave Euclide. “We are so proud to provide reliable, affordable, and sustainable power to Sun Prairie,” said Euclide. “We hope that young people in our community and their families acknowledge this vital service and maybe even look to the utility as a good place to work down the road.”

“Since we operate right here in Sun Prairie and serve our friends and neighbors, we care a great deal about things like customer service, helping folks save energy and money, and keeping the community safe,” said Euclide. “We are proud of the work we do in these areas.”

 Sun Prairie Utilities invites community members to participate in a variety of Public Power Week events. Activities include:
