For Immediate Release on Monday, October 7, 2019


Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is celebrating Public Power Week, October 6-12, 2019, along with more than 2,000 other community-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 49 million Americans.


“Public Power Week celebrates the reliable, affordable electricity that Moorhead Public Service provides to our community,” said MPS’ General Manager Bill Schwandt. “Public power puts the people of Moorhead first, and Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of locally grown, locally owned power to our citizens.”

MPS invites the community to attend the following Public Power Week event:

Public Power Week is an annual national event coordinated by the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C. The American Public Power Association is the voice of not‑for‑profit, community-owned utilities that power 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. The Association represents public power before the federal government to protect the interests of the more than 49 million people that public power utilities serve, and the 93,000 people they employ. It advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training, and operations. Its members strengthen their communities by providing superior service, engaging citizens, and instilling pride in community-owned power. More at www.PublicPower.org.
