The value and importance of NPU for our community continues

Public Power Week is October 1-7 this year

Public Power Week is an annual celebration of the American Public Power Association to mark the value and importance that public power providers bring to communities across the United States. So during this year’s Public Power Week, which runs from October 1-7, it is important to remember the many benefits provided to our community through Norwich Public Utilities (NPU).
