The Energy Behind
Public Power

ElectriCities is a member organization that serves public power communities.

What is Public Power?

“Public power” means a community owns and operates its own electric utility, distributing energy to its residents. That local ownership provides significant benefits within the community.

There are over 2,000 public power communities in the United States, with more than 70 in North Carolina alone.
