The Fennimore Electric Utility department has three full-time employees and maintains over 27 miles of transmission and distribution lines, along with the diesel plant and two substations. There are currently 257 street lights in the City.
Since 2012, over 20% of the purchased wholesale power that the Fennimore Electric Utility purchases is created by wind energy. This lessens the carbon footprint of the City and provides clean energy.
2020 Public Power Week Recognized by City of Fennimore Municipal Utilities
Public Power Week is an annual national event coordinated by the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C. The American Public Power Association is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 2,000 towns and cities nationwide.
Public Power Week runs from October 4 thru October 10. Since 2006 Fennimore Municipal Utilities have hosted some sort of celebration during this time. Due to COVID-19 this year Fennimore Utility Staff are giving their
customers an opportunity to win a credit against their utility bill by liking the City of Fennimore’s Facebook. A quick link may be found on the www.fennimore.com home page. We will also share information about our local utility and the importance of being a Focus on Energy community since 1904. Watch for weekly energy saving tips on our City Facebook page and in Linda Parrish’s Focus on Fennimore column in the Fennimore Times during October.
