[ARCHIVED] It's Public Power Week!


Public Power Week celebrates the reliable, affordable electricity Hudson Public Power provides to our community. Public power puts the people of Hudson first, and Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of locally grown, locally owned power that supports strong communities

HPP is tasked with maintaining the 100 miles of overhead and 60 miles of underground wire to keep the lights on in Hudson. This process includes pruning or removing any trees that are in danger of touching or falling on the wires.

Having a municipally owned power provider in Hudson is a valuable asset to the community. Not only does this allow a more focused customer service approach than larger electric companies, it also allows a faster and efficient response time during an outage or emergency due to a much smaller service area.

HPP's work to keep the lights on isn’t its only job. HPP staff has also been hard at work building the infrastructure for the City’s high-speed internet service Velocity Broadband. Their knowledge of the existing electric lines and pathways and electrical expertise has made them an integral part of the planning and implementation process with much of the fiber being laid along the electric network.

HPP employees are also responsible for turning Hudson into a twinkling wonderland during the holiday season with the hanging of the holiday lights. They also replace street lights when they go out, maintain the traffic signals, and hang banners on the light posts.
