The Importance of Public Power, Part 2: Dan Beans, Director of Redding Electric Utility

City of Redding

This is two-part series about the importance of Publicly Owned Power Utilities. Redding Electric Utility, our locally owned power utility, is celebrating 100 years of public power this year. We want to understand what it means to have locally owned public power and how the community benefits from this.

Power Utilities in general are expensive and complicated systems. What makes Public Power utilities better than their Investor Owned counterparts? Why should Redding care that REU is celebrating 100 years?

In this series, we talk with Joy Ditto, the President, and CEO of the American Public Power Association in Washington DC, and Dan Beans, Director of REU for the City of Redding.

We think you’ll learn some new information about the history of the power grid, how REU benefits our community, and why it is important to have people like Joy and Dan advocating for our local area in Sacramento and Washington, DC.
