Energy Expo

Come celebrate Public Power Week at PUD 3!



Electricity can be confusing, but we’re here to help! 

Each year during Public Power Week (first full week of October) Mason County 4th grade students are invited to the PUD 3 Johns Prairie operations center to learn about the basics of electricity and how the utility plays a part in their lives. Come join us for a fun-filled, hands-on, fast-paced event with many interactive displays about the utility and how our homes and businesses use energy. Teachers and homeschool parents can schedule to bring their students for a fun learning experience! 

Here are just a few of the displays and presentations we'll have available:4p3a0309.jpg
