Celebrating YOU & Public Energy Week

Oct 6, 2020 | 0 comments

Do you know what it means to be community powered? At the heart of our community, we’re committed to connecting you to electricity, natural gas, water, broadband and transit services.

We are one of more than 2,000 community-owned electric utilities and one of 1,000 natural gas utilities that collectively provide energy to 49 million Americans. We’re proud this week to join the American Public Power Association and the American Public Gas Association for Public Energy Week, Oct. 4-10.

As your community-owned utility, we’re proud to bring you affordable electric and natural gas rates.

In addition to having some of the lowest rates in the state and nationwide, you can expect to pay $4.10 less per month through March 2021 on your electric bill. This decrease is based on, what we call, “truing up” actual fuel costs from the prior six months with previously estimated costs as well as incorporating forecasted fuel costs over the next six months.

Affordable rates aren’t the only thing we’re celebrating. We’re proud of the energy we can provide to you.

In 2019, nearly 40% of our power was generated from renewable resources and that number is anticipated to be over grow even higher in the future!

With over 950 employees working every day for you, we’re proud to live and work in Springfield, and be your community-owned utility.
