Public Power

Public power is electricity that comes from a community owned and operated utility. It is an American tradition that works. The first municipal utility was established in 1882, and more than 350 public power utilities have celebrated their centennials. There are more than 2,000 cities and towns in the United States that light up their homes, businesses and streets with public power. Public power has a strong environmental-protection track record, solid credentials with bond rating agencies, and a reputation for reliable, customer-focused service.
