What is a public power utility and what are the benefits of public power?

Public power utilities are not-for-profit and community owned. Public power utilities offer several benefits including:

Lower rates: On a national average, public power rates are significantly lower than private power company rates.

Local control: Every citizen in the municipally-owned system is an owner.

Community development: The RMLD gives money back to the communities through in-lieu-of-tax payments.
