MMU Celebrates Public Power Week October 6th – 12th, 2019

Happy Public Power Week! Next time you see a Utility worker, be sure to thank them for a job well done. They are truly heroes who fight to keep the lights on. What does “Public Power” mean? It means reliable, affordable, environmentally responsible electricity that helps build strong communities.

Did you know that?:

  • McGregor Municipal Utilities (MMU) is one of the nation’s more than 2,000 community-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities

  • The first public power utilities sprang up in the late 1800s to serve predominantly rural communities

  • MMU is governed by a dedicated Board of Trustees

  • MMU reimburses the City each year for street lighting electricity

  • 4 employees live in town, paying the same rates you do

  • One bill for all city utilities saves everyone money

  • Excellent response rate to call-outs

Free Bulbs or Faucet Aerators & Help the Food Shelf

In celebration of public power week we are asking customers to bring in a minimum of 3 canned goods or personal items for the Food Shelf in the month of October. In return MMU will give our customers an LED bulb or faucet aerators, up to 3 per customer to each electric or water *customer while quantities last. MMU customers stop in, help the Food Shelf and get free energy and water conservation items. (*Water only customers eligible for faucet aerators)

Suggested items: peanut butter, tuna, canned fruit, flour, sugar, vanilla, shampoo, laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, toilet paper, and toothpaste.
