Public Power Week

Every public power system is different due to its community's population, geography, climate, natural resources, economy, and local government structure. However, all public power systems have in common their purpose: to provide adequate, reliable, not-for-profit electricity at a reasonable price with proper protection of the environment.

Maquoketa Municipal Electric Utility will celebrate the importance of public power during Public Power Week, October 1-7, 2023.

During Public Power Week, MMEU visited the local schools to educate them on what Lineworkers do everyday and to show them some of the tools, and the bucket truck. We would like to thank the schools for allowing us to come and visit with them and to educate the students on what we do everyday.
