Do you pay electric bills? Then you are invited to learn how Public Power can often lower electric rates.
Logansport’s coal firing plant must be shut down within two years, and our contract with Duke expires in four. Now is the time for ratepayers to look at some of the advantages that we could have with Public Power.
From 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, there will be a highly informative, free program at McHale Performing Arts Center. Every Logansport Municipal Utilities rate payer is invited — industrial, commercial and residential.
This event will be of special interest to all of us who want clean energy and lower electric bills. Leon Bontrager will speak about solar power. Jeff Haas, Vice President of the American Public Power Association, will give an overview of Public Power. Skip Kuker, who works with various electric suppliers and distributors, will talk about his Public Power experience in Greenfield. The evening will end with a question-and-answer session with the audience.
A local group, Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE), is sponsoring this presentation because the topic is of crucial importance to the future of our community. Knowledge is power for continuing progress for personal well-being and quality of life of our children. Our well-informed choice of electrical supplier will impact current and future employers and therefore jobs.
