BMU celebrates Public Power Week, hosts open house at new solar field
By LOU PENDLETON
Bryan Municipal Utilities is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 7-13, along with more than 2,000 other community-owned electric utilities across the U.S. that provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis.
Public Power Week is a chance for Bryan Municipal Utilities to communicate why the public power formula works in Bryan. We are absolutely dedicated to providing top-notch service and the lowest rates possible, said Steve Casebere, director of utilities.
We are anxious to have Bryan residents see the new solar power facility and learn how this renewable energy source works for Bryan, Casebere said. We know how vital electricity, water and communications are for the people of Bryan, and we continue to find ways to deliver those services reliably, safely and with special attention to the environment.
Bryan Municipal Utilities began 120 years ago with the establishment of the Bryan waterworks in 1892. Electric service was added in 1896 when the residents of Bryan voted to create their own electric company. Communications services were added in 1998 to provide Bryan with a fiber optic system for cable television, high-speed Internet access and data transfer.
Today Bryan Municipal Utilities has 45 employees and serves approximately 5,000 residential customers and 750 commercial and industrial customers. Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C. APPA is the service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.
