LODI ELECTRIC UTILITY Celebrates Its Role IN COMMUNITY, Oct. 3-9

 

Lodi, CA, September 15, 2004 – Lodi Electric Utility is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 3-9, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 43 million Americans. 

 

“Public Power Week honors Lodi’s community ownership, which results in reliable, affordable electricity for citizens and businesses.  It also recognizes the economic, social, and environmental contributions of a community-owned power system,” said Alan Vallow, Lodi Electric Utility Director.

 

Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association (APPA) in Washington, D.C.  APPA is the service organization for community-owned electric utilities.

 

“It’s hard to imagine life without electricity,” Vallow said.  “Electricity makes everything we do easier and better.   And having a community-owned electric system to provide our power also makes our lives better because we can make decisions locally and use our resources in ways that best suit our needs.”

 

Lodi Electric Utility will be hosting its annual open house event for local elementary schools on Wednesday, October 6.  For more information, please contact Sondra Huff at 333-6765.
