Greenfield celebrates public power week

GREENFIELD — The city of Green- field is celebrating Public Power Week through Saturday.

Public Power Week is a national, annual event conducted in conjunction with the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C. APPA is a service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities, such as Greenfield’s electric utility.

Throughout the state, public power utilities serve 430,000 Hoosiers each day, according to a news release.

Public Power Week gives the electric utility a chance to talk about the benefits of public power, said Mike Fruth, director of utilities for the city of Greenfield.

“We work every day to accomplish the ideals of public power utilities — low-cost power, reliable service and community-ownership and responsibility,” Fruth said.

“We are dedicated to providing top-notch service and the lowest rates possible to the people we serve – our neighbors and friends.
