On February 27th through March 1st, BPU’s General Manager, Josh Bedel, attended the American Public Power Association’s (APPA) Legislative Rally in Washington D.C.  Bedel was joined by ten other municipal leaders from Kansas to advocate on behalf of municipal utilities.

The group had an opportunity to discuss with legislators the key issues utilities and communities are facing, which are:

  • The growing supply chain constraints.
  • Low-income home energy assistance programs.
  • Energy transition opportunities.
  • Water needs, drought resiliency.

The conference offered unrivaled learning and networking opportunities for  leaders in various areas of utility business and operations.
