Silicon Valley Power celebrates Public Power Week this week
Post Date:10/07/2019 4:00 PM
Silicon Valley Power is joining over two thousand not for profit public power utilities nationwide in celebrating Public Power Week, October 6-12, 2019. This event celebrates our 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. 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 costs significantly less and is more dependable. Our reliable service has powered our local community while saving homes and businesses money for 123 years.
Silicon Valley Power will once again be out in the community to talk with customers about energy efficiency, renewable energy, electrical safety, and more. Stop by the Central Park Library on Tuesday, October 8th from 11:30am to 3:30pm or stop by the Northside Library on Wednesday, October 9th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm to visit with Silicon Valley Power representatives.
