We Are Community Powered
From small towns to large cities, community-owned, not-for-profit public power utilities power homes and businesses in 2,000 communities across the U.S. They safely provide reliable, low-cost electricity to more than 49 million Americans, while giving back to the communities they serve.
WHAT IS PUBLIC POWER?
Simply put, public power is community power. That means the decisions about how the electric utility is run are made by people who live and work in the community, not corporations. Public power utilities are rooted in and committed to the communities they serve, and invest revenues directly back into the community. Click here to learn more.
