10/01/2008 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) will celebrate Public Power Week October 5th – 11th, with more than 2,000 electric utilities across the country which collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 43-million Americans.

“Public Power Week honors KEYS hometown service, resulting in reliable electricity for our community,” said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS General Manager & CEO.

Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association (APPA) in Washington, D.C. The APPA is the service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.

“We all take for granted the availability of electricity,” Tejeda said. “It’s an absolute necessity day in and day out. Having a community-owned electric utility providing our power allows us to make decisions locally on how we want to use our resources for the betterment of the community.”

As part of the celebration of local ownership and control of vital infrastructure and energy services, KEYS is encouraging consumers to use energy efficiently. KEYS offers these tips to help consumers use less electricity to lower monthly bills and protect the environment:

- Set air conditioners between 76 and 78 degrees.

- Use compact fluorescent light bulbs.

- Air dry dishes instead of using the dishwasher’s drying cycle.

- Plug home electronics in to power strips and turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use to avoid “ghost loads”.

- Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes.
