OPE IS #PoweringGood
Put simply, outdoor power equipment enables people to help others in their communities. The equipment OPEI members manufacture allows anyone to make difficult and challenging chores easier, and lets us be better neighbors — whether it's using our snow blower to help clear the snow, portable generators to supply power or water pumps to pump out neighbors' flooded basements. OPEI is sharing stories of people who are #PoweringGood. Learn more.
