Ocala Electric Utility (OEU) is set to host a Customer Appreciation Day from 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 5 at Citizens’ Circle.

The event is scheduled to coincide with Public Power Week from Oct. 1 through 7, which aims to help customers and stakeholders better engage with their local utility company and benefit from the services they offer.

On customer appreciation day, OEU will provide food cooked by OEU crews, along with family activities, entertainment and giveaways.

“Appreciation prizes include bill credits to be used on customer accounts. Guests must have a City of Ocala municipal service account to qualify,” according to a press release from the city.

Customers will have the chance to spin a prize wheel to receive utility vouchers with randomly assigned monetary values.

“We are dedicated to the community we serve,” said Doug Peebles, director of Ocala Electric Utility, in the press release. “Public Power Week, along with our annual Customer Appreciation Day, helps to highlight OEU’s efforts as Ocala and Marion County’s hometown public power provider.”
