Being part of the community we serve is a role that Reedsburg Utility Commission takes seriously.
As a utility, we work hard to be an active participant by lending a hand in community service projects and offering various educational programs.
We have pledged a strong commitment to, not only our customers, but to our community. Through a number of civic-minded activities, Reedsburg Utility Commission has fostered strong relationships that help further our connection to the community.
Public Power Walk
Reedsburg Utility Commission celebrates Public Power every year during Public Power Week (typically the first week of October). Participants of the walk can register for an ENERGY STAR Clothes Washer, and ENERGY STAR Table Lamps, as well as receive free treats and gifts.
The Utility also displays a live electric demonstration, conducted by the Utility’s Electric Lineman, which shows the dangers of electricity and captures an overall view of how the electric system works. Participants can also try out their power with our Pedal Power Bicycle, by producing energy to light up light bulbs, & energize a radio!

In an effort to celebrate Reedsburg’s Charlie Troop’s halfway point of their deployment to Iraq, Kate Welter of the Reedsburg Utility Commission and SSG Jason McDonough of the National Guard organized a greeting card drive. Operation Cards for the Reedsburg Guards was a two-week drive to send a “thank you” greeting card to soldiers in Reedsburg’s Charlie Troop.
The drive generated over 2,500 greeting cards from Reedsburg area community members. The cards ranged from homemade greetings to patriotic portraits, all containing messages of thanks to the soldier for their service and sacrifice to our nation and to our community. “The greeting card drive was a huge success, and it was incredible to witness the community support for our local Charlie Troop Soldiers,” said Kate Welter.
