Public Power Week

Each year, more than 2,000 community-owned utilities, like Sun Prairie Utilities, 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.

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 adequate, reliable, not-for-profit electricity at a reasonable price with proper protection of the environment.

Join us in celebrating Public Power Week, October 4-8. In appreciation of our customers, we’re providing the following opportunities on Tuesday, October 5th:

Bring in your unopened nonperishable food, diapers and personal care items to donate to Sunshine Place and receive a free LED bulb or smart plug (one per household, while supplies last). Drop off your items anytime between 8 am – 4 pm on October 5th. While you are dropping off your items sign up for our Choose Renewable Program and be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an EGO self-propelled electric lawn mower. Receive one entry for each block purchased. Eligible for current residential customers. Find the 2021 Public Power Week details here.  Let the fun and celebration begin.
