Illuminate Public Power: A Decorah Power Benefit Auction

Join us Saturday, Febrauary 24 from 6 – 8:30 pm at the Decorah Elks Lodge.

what is Public Power?

Public power means homes and businesses run on electricity provided by a not-for-profit, locally-owned utility. We have an opportunity to create public power in Decorah to control our energy future.

LOWER COST

Our feasibility study shows a Decorah electric utility could operate at a 30% lower cost than our current utility provider. Yes, please!

KEEP DOLLARS LOCAL

Pay your energy bill to the City of Decorah rather than to an investor-owned corporation. Millions of dollars could stay in our community.

CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE

Decorah is a leader in energy efficiency and locally-owned renewable energy. With public power, we can meet our stewardship goals!

HIGH RELIABILITY

Municipal electric utilities have less than half the outage duration than the national average. Don’t worry, the lights will stay on!
