It’s Throwback Thursday and this week we are focusing on Cleveland Public Power’s (CPP) Annual Open House in celebration of Public Power Week! In 2006 as CPP celebrated its Centennial the first annual Open House was held at our administrative offices in downtown Cleveland.

The celebrations have been going strong since then and we invite you to join us this Saturday from noon – 4 p.m. This is an opportunity to learn more about your locally owned and operated power utility; how electricity comes into your home and the best ways to be safe around electricity.
To add to the many activities on electricity we will also have representatives from the Cleveland Divisions of Water, Water Pollution Control and Waste. The Cleveland Fire Department will have the Smokehouse on site so you can learn how to respond to smoke in your home and the Cleveland Police Department will also be on hand to discuss your personal safety.
The snow has stopped for now so take this opportunity to visit the Great Big Home & Garden Show at the Cleveland IX Center today! The show runs today until 5 p.m. and Cleveland Public Power staff are joined by their colleagues in the Department of Public Utilities in Booth 1008 to provide information on the services offered by the City.

and learn how you can make that happen. Are you looking to make your home or business more efficient? Our staff can point you in the right direction for savings.
