Celebrate Public Power Week 2014 - 10/6-10/10

August 04, 2014:

Public Power Week LogoHG&E is a municipal utility, which means that we are not-for-profit and owned by the community we serve – Holyoke. Unlike private utilities, we do not answer to shareholders thousands of miles away. Instead, we answer to you, our ratepayer. Here are some reasons why a municipal utility is the best choice for Holyoke:

  • We operate in the public interest – for the benefit of the residents and businesses in the City of Holyoke. Our focus is on providing you with excellent service instead of making a profit.
  • Our employees live in the community, and many are HG&E customers themselves. If a customer has a complaint, he or she can discuss the problem locally, with another member of the community, and be assured that the problem will be addressed.
  • Local ownership means that a good portion of our customers’ energy dollars stay in the community – creating jobs and supporting the local community.
  • Our rates and services are controlled locally. This enables us to make decisions and provide services that specifically benefit the community.
  • We provide our customers with energy at some of the lowest rates in Massachusetts.
  • Our low energy rates and financial incentives serve to assist the City’s Economic Development efforts.
