We are proud to be a “public power” municipal electric provider. As a municipal utility, we are governed by the people. Our citizens elect representatives to council and may provide input at their open meetings. Power is purchased, but we take responsibility for delivering the service to our citizens through installation and maintenance of the distribution lines. If there is ever a problem with your service, it can be handled locally. We strive to provide quality service at the best economical price, and give back to the community. This also allows us to keep our real estate taxes low.
