Public Power Bond
A bond issued by a publicly-owned utility company. Because utility companies have very large capital expenditures (they must build expensive infrastructure to provide their services), they use public power bonds to finance many of their projects. Because they are publicly-owned, interest is usually tax exempt at the federal level.
