The annual Run to Stay Warm symbolizes so many things that are important to us — community, caring for our customers, health and wellness, teamwork and fun.
Year after year, Run to Stay Warm attracts thousands of participants, helping to raise money for our Customer Care programs.
The 5K, 10K and half marathon take place the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for details about this year's run.
Because EWEB is a public agency, it is exempt from taxes. Instead, we contribute a portion of electricity sales revenue to the cities of Eugene and Springfield in the form of Contributions in Lieu of Taxes, or CILT. In 2015, CILT payments of more than $13 million supplemented the cities' general funds, supporting critical services like public safety.
We believe energy and water resource education is important. We provide grant funds to local schools, offer tours and presentations and support educational activities in our community.
As a public utility, we share our customers' values around environment stewardship. We aim to leave a positive legacy.
