Black River Falls Municipal Utilities (BRFMU) finished up 2021 by giving back to the local community, the Black River Falls, Wisconsin-based public power utility recently reported.
BRFMU provided a donation to the Jackson County Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers new building fund. This was matched by the Lunda Charitable Fund, which will match all donations until $800,000 is reached.
BRFMU also contributed to the Interfaith Caregivers’ Groceries to Go fund, a program that delivers groceries to homebound seniors and others in need.
Black River Falls High School has several classes that teach students about electricity. However, supplies such as pliers, outlets, switches, wire, and others are needed to provide this hands-on experience.
BRFMU partnered with the school in order to provide the equipment and supplies needed for the classes.
American Legion Post 200, an organization serving veterans and their families, is currently remodeling its kitchen and installing more energy efficient equipment.
As a supporter of energy efficiency projects, BRFMU made a contribution towards the project and is encouraging other organizations to reach out if they will also be doing projects that will result in electrical energy savings.
BRFMU is a locally owned, not-for-profit electric, water, and wastewater utility, serving more than 2,700 customers.
BRFMU is one of 51 public power utilities that are member-owners of wholesale power provider and joint action agency WPPI Energy.
