Silicon Valley Power is joining over two thousand not for profit public power utilities nationwide in celebrating Public Power Week, which is observed from Oct. 6 to Oct. 12. This event celebrates Silicon Valley Power’s long-standing service to the people in Santa Clara.
“Unlike investor-owned utilities that answer first to their shareholders, Silicon Valley Power is a publicly owned utility, which means we’re accountable above all to you, our customers,” said Silicon Valley Power in a press release. “We’re not-for-profit, so we’re more responsive to customers’ concerns and provide friendly, in-person service. Decisions about our electric utility are made by people who live and work in the community.”
Silicon Valley Power customers receive service that’s more affordable, more reliable, and also environmentally sustainable. On average, public power utilities cost significantly less and are more dependable.
“Our reliable service has powered our local community while saving homes and businesses money for 123 years,” said Silicon Valley Power.
Silicon Valley Power will be out in the community to talk with customers about energy efficiency, renewable energy, electrical safety and more as part of Public Power Week. They will be at the Central Park Library on Tuesday, Oct. 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and at the Northside Library on Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. to visit with Silicon Valley Power representatives.
