Greenfield Power and Light provides electrical service to residential and commercial customers within the Greenfield city limits.
Public power means more to us than lines and poles...Public power is about people, the people who use our service and the people who provide that service. Every one of our customers is an owner of our utility and has a say in the way we provide power. As a locally owned and operated utility, we provide our consumer-owners with an efficient, reliable power supply for a reasonable cost. Public power helps keep the local economy healthy too. The dollars paid for electricity through Greenfield Power and Light stay right here in Hancock County.
Public power systems listen to their consumers...Local control gives everyone a say in how our utility can best meet community needs. That makes a big difference in the rates you pay and the service you get. Public power systems are not run for profit. Our only mission is to provide you with reliable electric service at reasonable rates. There are no dividends to pay out-of-state stockholders. All the benefits of our locally controlled electric utility remain here in the community.
The City of Greenfield is celebrating Public Power Week, October 4 through 10, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities across the nation that collectivelyprovide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 46 million Americans. Nearly 15 percent of the entire United States population receives power from a municipally-owned utility. In Indiana, 72 municipalities have the distinction of being public power utilities and serve 430,000 Hoosiers every day.
Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association (APPA) in Washington, D.C. APPA is the service organizationfor community- and state-owned electric utilities.
"Public Power Week is a chance for our utility talk about what public power is and why it is such a wonderful asset to have in our community," commented Michael Fruth, Director of Utilities and IMPA Commissioner for Greenfield. "We work every day to accomplish the idealsof public power utilities -low-cost power, reliable service, and community-ownership and responsibility. We are dedicated to providing top-notch service and the lowest rates possible to the people we serve - our neighbors and friends."
The dedication to providing reliable service extends to Greenfield's wholesale power provider as well, the Indiana Municipal Power Agency (IMPA). "IMPA knows how vitalelectricity is for the people of our member communities, and we continue to find ways to deliver it reliably, safely and with special attention to the environment," said IMPA President and CEO Raj Rao.
