“Public Power Week celebrates the reliable, affordable electricity TTD provides to our community,” said Jim Smith, TTD General Manager. “Public power puts the people of East Norwalk first, and Public Power Week gives us the chance to emphasize the advantages of having a community-owned, locally controlled utility that is accessible and places customer needs ahead of profits,” said Smith.

“Our service is reliable and safe and we take pride in serving our friends and neighbors,” added Smith. “TTD is proud to have served East Norwalk for more than 100 years.”
Today TTD has 12 employees, operates 4 substations and serves approximately 3,900 residential and commercial customers.
