The following is an announcement from Peabody Municipal Light Plant:
Peabody Municipal Light Plant (PMLP) is celebrating Public Power Week, October 7-13, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a non-for-profit basis to 46 million Americans.
“Public Power Week is a chance for PMLP to inform our customers of the benefits of our not-for-profit, electric utility, owned by the citizens of Peabody. “ PMLP is committed to the protection of our environment and to the welfare and safeguard of our community,” said PMLP Manager Glenn Trueira. “We are dedicated to providing safe, reliable electricity and high quality service at the lowest possible rates.” With one of the most modern and reliable electric distribution facilities in New England, PMLP’s electric rates are traditionally among the lowest in Massachusetts. PMLP serves over 20,000 residential customers and 3,800 commercial and industrial customers in Peabody and South Lynnfield.
Peabody Municipal Light Plant invites customers to participate in the PMLP Bulb Sale and Open House on Saturday, October 13, 2012, between 9 am and noon, when customers can purchase the new energy efficient LED and CFL lighting at substantially reduced prices. Participants should bring along their electric bill or license to confirm that they are PMLP customers to take advantage of the annual Bulb Sale. “We’ll be selling Lighting products to our customers at well below market prices. This is our way to say thank you to our community, and to help our conservation efforts,” stated Trueira.
During Public Power Week, PMLP would like to thank our employees for their constant dedication in providing Peabody and South Lynnfield residents with reliable electrical service 24/7 during 2012.
