Algoma Utilities Celebrates 115 Years
Algoma Utilities, Algoma’s locally owned, not-for-profit electric utility, celebrates its 115th anniversary in 2019.
Algoma Utilities is a proud member-owner of WPPI Energy, a not-for-profit wholesale energy provider and joint action agency. The utility’s milestone anniversary was recognized at an awards ceremony during the WPPI Energy Annual Meeting on September 19, 2019.
“I’d like to extend my congratulations and appreciation to Algoma Utilities for 115 years of service to the Algoma community,” said Mike Peters, President and CEO of WPPI Energy.
The utility was founded by the citizens of Algoma. It has remained a public power utility since that time and utility employees continue to be guided by the principles of local ownership and control, keeping revenue in the community, providing first-rate customer service, and making a positive impact in the community through volunteer and outreach efforts.
“Working for a local utility that’s owned by the community we serve gives us a much bigger reason to care about the work we do. We also live in this community; it’s our home. We want to be a part of making it great,” said Pete Haack, General Manager of Algoma Utilities. “Anniversaries are a great time to reflect both on what has brought us to this point and where we want to go in the future.”
Algoma Utilities is a municipally owned and operated utility, serving customers in Algoma, Wisconsin. As a member-owner of WPPI Energy, the utility joins forces with 50 other public power utilities to share resources and provide reliable, affordable electricity to more than 200,000 homes and businesses in Wisconsin, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and Iowa.
