Conservation continues to play an important role in meeting the requirements of our community. We have important programs underway in virtually every area of our operations to help the community do more with less. These programs include everything from educational community forums on energy efficiency and conservation to smart metering programs that allow our customers more hands-on control over the amount of energy they use.

Our direction is clear: To engage in advanced, responsible thinking on how to meet the electric, water, wastewater treatment, and broadband needs of a growing community. We are always looking for new ways to collaborate with our customers while protecting our community’s independence. We need to enable community growth that is sustainable, with policies and services that are both reliable and affordable. We continue to anticipate the changes in our community, state, nation and the world that will challenge utility providers. We will work with our stakeholders to ensure their collective values are reflected in our actions.

Thank you,
