ALP Utilities is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 6-12, along with more than 2,000 other community-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 49 million Americans. “We are proud to be community powered,” said ALP Utilities General Manager Ted Cash. “Public power puts the people of the communities we serve first, and Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of locally owned power to our citizens. Our service is reliable and safe, and we take pride in serving our friends and neighbors. We are proud to have served the Alexandria area for 130 years,” said Cash.
