Webinar Overview:

This is a refresh of the More Powerful Together webinar from October 11.

Most consumers do not understand why a public power utility is different from other energy sources. In fact, they don’t really think about anything utility as long as the lights come on and bills are not too steep. The NWPPA Board of Trustees wanted tools to help utilities communicate why public power matters, so NWPPA and Ruralite Services joined forces to create More Powerful Together, a consumer-focused effort illustrating how consumers get more than energy from community-owned utilities. The More Powerful Together materials are based on research with regional utility leaders and consumer focus groups to leverage direct benefits to the consumer and align with consumers’ expectations of involvement; focus on consumer-inspired experience; show the real value public power provides and the benefits of engaging; be focused, brief, and inspiring; and make consumers feel like part of an on-going conversation. Quarterly from October 2017 to September 2018, we will release four sets of engagement tools focused on these key messages: Local, Innovative, Driven, Expert.

Local materials were launched on October 2; Innovative materials will be launched on January 8.
