Newport Utilities Customer Appreciation
Newport Utilities is celebrating its Community during Public Power Week with a Customer Appreciation Day on Wednesday, October 10. NU is joining with more than 2,000 other community-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 49 million Americans to observe Public Power Week, October 7 through 13. NU serves more than 22,000 electric power customers in a 600 square mile area utilizing eight substations, 32 miles of transmission lines, and 1500 miles of distribution lines. "We are proud to be community-powered," said Glenn Ray, Newport Utilities General Manager. "Public power puts the people of Cocke County first and Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantage of a locally owned, locally managed power company," said Ray. "We take pride in providing our community with safe, reliable power," said Roland Dykes, NU Board Chairman. "NU has proudly served Cocke County and the surrounding areas for more than 75 years. We look forward to serving for many years to come." NU invites community members to participate in its annual Customer Appreciation Day on Wednesday, October 10. Festivities begin at 10:00 AM and run until 2:00 PM with food, giveaways, and a chance to win an electric grill. Customers are also invited to view the new Customer Experience Center for broadband service demonstrations.
