As part of a national observance, in October Owensboro Municipal Utilities is celebrating Public Power Month along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities whose communities provide their citizens electric services on a locally-owned, not-for-profit basis.
OMU will honor its customer-owners throughout the month of October with a Customer Appreciation Day each Wednesday. Visitors to the Customer Service Center (2700 Tamarack Road) will receive a free gift while supplies last.
OMU will extend its celebration with its annual Power Run/Walk 5K on October 27. Learn more about the 2018 OMU Power Run/Walk and register for the event today. Participants will receive a long-sleeved event t-shirt, eligibility for awards and door prize entry. Costumes are encouraged.
Public Power Week is celebrated in conjunction with the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C., the service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.
