Award designed to recognize growth and guidance in the utility industry
Kaukauna Utilities, the community’s locally owned, not-for-profit municipal utility, recently attended the WPPI Energy Annual Meeting on September 19, 2019. With over 50 utility organizations present, Kaukauna Utilities took home the event’s Utility Leadership Award.
The award recognizes an electric utility that is a member of WPPI Energy and displays excellence in advancing strategic initiatives, provides leadership and benefits to other member utilities, and supports public power and joint action.
Established in 1912, Kaukauna Utilities — at 107 years old — has a rich history of promoting the benefits of public power. The community recognizes the value that a locally owned utility brings residents, businesses, industry, schools and the city at large.
Kaukauna Utilities takes pride in serving its community. The utility communicates proactively with customers, including a yearly newsletter to build awareness about its services and the significant value that a local utility delivers. They are also expanding their social media presence to better connect with residents and business owners in the area.
As an active partner in the community, they enable economic growth while simultaneously launching renewable energy goals. The utility has already achieved more than 33% renewable energy, flying past their goal of 25% by 2025.
WPPI Energy CEO Mike Peters stated, “Kaukauna Utilities is a well-run and managed municipal utility. By continuously sharing its experience, they are seen as a leader in the WPPI Energy ‘family’ and our membership is pleased to highlight their value with this prestigious award.”
