Holyoke Gas & Electric (HG&E) is celebrating Public Power & Natural Gas Week, October 5-9, along with thousands of community-owned utilities throughout the country, collectively providing electricity and natural gas services to millions of Americans. This annual nationwide event will be different this year, as we cannot celebrate in person, but HG&E hopes to build awareness about the value of having a community-owned utility in Holyoke.
“Public Power & Natural Gas Week honors the community ownership of HG&E, which results in competitive rates, innovative and sustainable energy solutions, reliable service, and excellent customer care for residents and businesses. It also recognizes the economic, social, and environmental contributions of our public power system,” said James Lavelle, HG&E’s Manager. “The pandemic has highlighted how personal HG&E’s relationship is with our customers, as we continue to provide service and support during this challenging time.”
Having a local, public utility benefits the community in many ways, including:
