Public Power Week
The Town of Wake Forest and Wake Forest Power (WFP) are joining more than 2,000 not-for-profit utilities in celebrating Public Power Week October 4-10.
Although this year’s Energy Expo and other in-person customer appreciation activities are canceled due to COVID-19, Wake Forest and WFP will commemorate Public Power Week by offering a special online trivia contest and utilizing the WFP Facebook page to celebrate the benefits of public power and salute the folks who keep our lights on.
Public Power Week Trivia Contest
Wake Forest Power residential customers can enter to win free electricity in October by participating in the Public Power Week Trivia Contest.
All of the answers to the trivia questions can be found on the Town of Wake Forest website. Every customer that answers all 10 questions correctly will be entered into a drawing for free electricity.
On Friday, Oct. 9, at 3 p.m., the names of three winners will be drawn during a Facebook Live broadcast. The entry deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5.
Wake Forest Power Facebook Page
Throughout the week of October 5, WFP will post a variety of information on its Facebook page on themes ranging from Wake Forest’s public power history to the responsibilities of the different divisions and staff that make up Wake Forest Power. WFP customers interested in learning more about these and related topics are encouraged to “Like” Wake Forest Power on Facebook.
In addition, WFP will share on Facebook videos of various electric safety demonstrations typically offered in Centennial Plaza during Customer Appreciation Day. These demonstrations include the “Hurt Man Rescue” and tips for planting around transformers.
Finally, kids will have the chance to download from the WFP Facebook page a variety of coloring pages related to public power. They can then submit photos of themselves and their completed coloring pages to be featured on Facebook.
