[ARCHIVED] Homestead Energy Services Celebrates Public Power Week, Oct. 7-13

Homestead Energy Services is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 7-13, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 46 million Americans.

“Public Power Week is a chance for Homestead Energy Services to articulate why public power works in Homestead. We are absolutely dedicated to providing top-notch service and the lowest rates possible,” said Barbara Quiñones, Homestead Energy Services Director.

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 organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.

“We are proud to have served Homestead for 96 years,” Quiñones said. “Homestead Energy Services strives to provide quality service and contribute to the community’s economic vitality, so it’s important for us to let our customers know how valuable we are as a local resource.”

“Homestead Energy Services knows how critical electricity is for the people of Homestead, and we continue to find ways to deliver it reliably, safely and with special attention to the environment,” Quiñones said.

Homestead Energy Services was created in 1916. Today it has 49 employees with one power plant and 5 substations. It serves 19,867 residential customers, and 2,648 commercial and industrial customers.
