Highly Reliable Service
Customers of public power utilities lose power less often. Customers of a public power utility are likely to be without power for just 59 minutes a year, compared to customers of private utilities that may lose power for 133 minutes a year — provided there are no major adverse events. When an outage does happen, customers call a local number and community-owned are prepared to act quickly and safely restore power to respond. Lineworkers typically liveand work in the community they serve, so their response time is lessened.
