Elk River Municipal Utilities, now in their 67th year operating as a municipally owned public power utility, and in their 99th year operating since incorporation, will be celebrating 2014 PUBLIC POWER WEEK October 5-11.
This national event is sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association. There are approximately 2,000 community-owned electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 47 million Americans. They are operated by local governments as a public service with the mission of providing electricity in a reliable manner, at a reasonable cost, and with proper protection of the environment. Public power companies exist to serve our fellow citizens, friends, and neighbors. "Elk River Municipal Utilities' loyalty is to our customers and our community, not stockholders. We are proud to be a public power utility and to help make our community a great place to live and work,"said Troy Adams, General Manager.
