Event Description: October 2013 marks Public Power Week's 27th anniversary as a country-wide program to celebrate the importance of public power with local citizens as well as state and national officials. Lakeland Electric employees invite all residents to experience their electric utility.

Participants will see how electricity is generated, learn how to save energy and dollars, get a better understanding of what goes into establishing electric rates and experience hands-on operations of power equipment. Attendees will get a firsthand look at the various generation units and the operating systems at the McIntosh Power Plant. Not everyone gets access to the power plant. This is a rare opportunity to take a bus tour of the generation facility that produces the majority of the electricity that powers Lakeland.
Besides the tours, there will be a number of activities that will include something for all ages. The fun-filled, day includes:

• Bucket Truck Rides
