In recognition of National Public Power Week (October 1-7), Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) invites customers to attend an Open House on Thursday, October 5th from 3:00pm to 6:00pm at RMLD’s Garage located at 218 Ash Street, Reading. This fun and educational event will feature bucket truck rides, face painting, kid’s games and prizes, pumpkin decorating, a lineman dress-up activity for the kids, lineman demos, and an electric vehicle showcase. RMLD staff will offer education on electricity, electrical safety, energy conservation, and information about RMLD rebate and efficiency programs. The event will also feature free snacks and music.
“As a locally owned and operated, not-for-profit public power utility, we’re proud to provide safe, reliable, and affordable electricity to the communities we serve,” said RMLD General Manager Coleen O’Brien. “This annual event gives us the opportunity to interact with our customers and show them what we do to provide their electricity each and every day. Likewise, customers can meet our staff and get to know the people who work behind the scenes at RMLD. The Open House is a wonderful opportunity to build on an already positive relationship with the communities we serve.”
Public Power Week is an annual national event to celebrate the more than 2,000 community owned, not-for-profit utilities that provide electricity to 49 million Americans.
RMLD provides electricity to Reading, North Reading, Wilmington, and Lynnfield Center.
