Every year during the first week of October, Mayfield Electric & Water Systems, the American Public Power Association and 2000 other utilities across the nation celebrate Public Power Week. During this week, MEWS would like to show gratitude to our customers. As a public power utility, the safety of our employees, customers, reliability of our workforce and system are our main goals. Reliable utilities and excellent customer service is what our company strives to provide. This year is the 32nd anniversary of the week-long celebration by public power utilities, such as MEWS, that collectively supply electricity to more than 46 million Americans. As we have in the past, MEWS will be hosting opportunities for our customers to win energy-conserving products and will have give-a-ways as well. This year, MEWS will also be serving a FREE hamburger/hotdog lunch to show appreciation for our customers on Wednesday, October 3rd. Please come, join the fun, and enjoy lunch on us!

MEWS posts information and notifications through Social Media during normal business hours (7am to 4:30pm), Twitter and Facebook are online tools that can help connect Mayfield Electric & Water Systems effectively communicate with our customers. These tools can be used to quickly share information with people interested in our utility. Social media allows our customers to stay connected with us and receive minute-by-minute information about what’s going on with our utilities during normal business hours. There will be updates on power outages, water main breaks, boil water advisories, and traffic alerts due to maintenance. All customers do not follow MEWS on social media therefore we utilize the One Call System, local radio stations, or possibly door to door notifications when feasible. MEWS also uses social media to share information on energy and water conservation, preparedness, tips on how to lower your bill and information on special services and programs we offer to our customers.
