Veterans Day

Prairie State commemorated Veterans Day with the dedication of a new flag pole on campus this morning, while also recognizing our employees who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It is our honor to celebrate America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Four Prairie State employees, representing each branch of the Armed Forces, helped raise the new flag: Jeff Miller (Navy), Dave Mesch (Marines), Mike Langenstein (Army), and Larry Morris (Air Force).

Public Power Week 2015

This week marks Public Power Week's 29th anniversary as a nationwide program to celebrate the importance of public power to local citizens and other key publics, including state and national officials. The American Public Power Association (APPA) sponsors Public Power Week.

Prairie State is proud to be public power owned and maintains the same principles as set forth by public power: to supply our owners and their members with reliable power that is produced in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Prairie State is celebrating Public Power Week along with the APPA and more than 2,000 other not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 48 million Americans.

In honor of public power week, Prairie State and its employees encourage you to take the "energy pledge" and think of ways you can save energy at your home.
