Forest City Electric Department Celebrates Public Power Week

Forest City Electric Department is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 2-8, along with more than 2,000 other community-powered, not-for profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 49 million Americans.
“This year, we are focusing on educating the next generation of Forest City Electric Department customers on the benefits of public power,” said Duane Kuhn, Electric Department Manager.
“We are so proud to provide reliable, affordable, and sustainable power to the Forest City Community,” said Duane. “We hope that young people in our community and their families acknowledge this vital service and maybe even look to the utility as a good place to work down the road.”
“Since we operate right here in Forest city and serve our friends and neighbors, we care a great deal about things like customer service, helping folks save energy and money, and keeping the community safe,” said Duane. “We are proud of the work we do in these areas.”
Today the Forest City Electric Department has 9 employees with a 20 megawatt power plant and 2 substations that continue to serve our 1760 residential customers, 390 commercial customers and 1 industrial customer.
