Heartland is celebrating Public Power Week next week along with more than 2,000 other community-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 47 million Americans.
“Public Power Week celebrates our customers’ reliable, affordable electricity and service,” said Heartland CEO Russell Olson. “Public power puts the consumer first. Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of locally grown, locally owned power.”
In recognition of Public Power Week, Heartland plans to host electric utility officials from the city of Madison and other customer communities for lunch tomorrow at our headquarters. As a token of appreciation, Heartland will be giving away electric grills to two customer utilities for their use.
Public Power Week is an annual national event coordinated by the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C. The association represents not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities that power homes, businesses and streets in nearly 2,000 towns and cities, serving 47 million Americans. With no divided loyalties, these utilities are focused on a single mission — providing reliable electricity at a reasonable price, while protecting the environment. More at www.PublicPower.org.
Heartland is proud to have an active presence in our hometown community of Madison, SD. Some of that presence includes sponsorship of local events, programs and organizations, such as the local high school athletic booster club.
Madison High School recently renovated their building and built a new gymnasium. With the upgrade in facilities, the school installed new scoreboards that feature video and playback content. As a game day sponsor, Heartland has produced a 30-second commercial which runs on the boards during timeouts and game breaks.
