Sioux Center Celebrates Public Power & Natural Gas Week

Public Power and Natural Gas Week 2018

Sioux Center Municipal Utilities is celebrating its distinctively local service during Public Power & Natural Gas Week, Oct. 7-13, 2018.

“We are proud to be community-owned and community-focused,” said Sioux Center Utility Manager Murray Hulstein. “Public power and natural gas put the people of Sioux Center first, and this week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of locally-owned utilities to our citizens.”

Sioux Center Municipal Utilities are not for profit and driven by local decision making. Because SCMU is operated by local employees, the community is served with quicker response times and face-to-face customer service.

 “We take pride in serving our friends and neighbors with reliability and safety as priorities,” Hulstein said. “We also invest back in Sioux Center and promote healthy community growth. We have provided public utilities for more than 60 years and we are proud to continue serving in Sioux Center.”

Sioux Center purchases 25 percent of its electricity from the Western Area Power Association’s  hydro-electric dams, and 75 percent from Missouri River Energy Services, which includes coal, combustion and wind generation. Sioux Center’s natural gas department operates about 70 miles of pipeline, delivering gas purchased from Northern Natural Gas.
