Community Benefits

We invest more than meters, poles and wires in the community. Our civic pride and commitment to excellent customer service extends to making Algoma a better place to live and work.



Since 1904, Algoma Utilities has seen our community grow to become what it is today. We’re proud to have supplied the electric power that has helped to make this growth possible. 


We’re equally proud that the volunteer efforts of our employees and the utility have contributed to the development, growth and well-being of our great community. The cornerstone of a not-for-profit, municipally owned and operated utility is “local people working together to meet local needs.” And that’s just where the benefits to the community start.

Contributions

We are pleased to support a number of community organizations. Each year, the utility selects a group (or groups) to make worthy contributions that will help meet a need in the community.
In 2018, we made contributions to the following organizations:

  • Wolf Den Weekend Backpack Program/Algoma Methodist Church.
  • St Mary's School for playground equipment.
  • Algoma Boys Little League for new uniforms and park updates.

WPPI Energy also offers $ 1,000 to be used for local economic development programs. In 2018 the grants were awarded to the Algoma Public Library for the community outdoor movie night and the Algoma Halloween Walk community program.
