Community Relations

-A A +A

Reading Municipal Light Department has long held the philosophy that community is important. RMLD is committed to contributing to the towns we serve through a robust community relations program which incorporates education, participation, and community support.

RMLD's annual Elementary Student Art Contest has been a consistent element of 3rd and 4th grade curriculum in our towns for over 20 years. In 2017, RMLD launched its annual High School Student Art Contest as a means to engage high school age students within the communities we serve.

Each year during Public Power Week, RMLD holds an Open House featuring lineman demos, fun kid’s activities, and education on electrical safety and conservation. This event is a great opportunity for RMLD staff and RMLD customers to interact and get to know each other.

RMLD produces a wall calendar each year that showcases historical pictures from the four communities we serve. RMLD’s Historical Calendar is a favorite of local residents and is highly anticipated every December.

To stay connected with the local business and non-profit community, RMLD actively participates in local Chamber of Commerce groups and Rotary Clubs.

RMLD provides education on electrical safety, energy efficiency, and RMLD programs through its email communication program which includes a bimonthly e-newsletter and emails with targeted information that may benefit RMLD customers.

RMLD also regularly hosts children’s groups such as cub/girl scouts and STEM groups to provide a hands-on educational experience. RMLD also participates in several local community events such as local town days, touch-a-truck events, farmers markets, and more. In addition, RMLD holds regular educational events on a variety of topics at our local libraries and senior centers.
