TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - On Sunday, October 5, 2014, from 1-5 p.m. the City of Tallahassee invites the community to the Arvah B. Hopkins Electric Generating Facility. It has been named one of the top six gas-fired, electric generating facilities in the world.

The annual family-friendly event aims to teach participants about electricity generation, City services and the community's commitment to clean energy. Highlights will include guided power plant tours, field demonstrations by electric line crews and fire fighters, big trucks, helicopter displays, K-9 units, children's games, educational booths and refreshments. There will also be valuable information on the City's Energy Smart Plus (e+) products and services, designed to help customers save energy, water and, most importantly, money.

The event is held in conjunction with Public Power Week and Public Natural Gas Week.

The Hopkins power plant is located three miles west of Capital Circle SW at 1125 Geddie Road, between Highways 20 and 90. For more information, call Your Own Utilities at 891-4YOU (4968).
