We Are Community Powered
From small towns to large cities, homes and businesses in more than 2,000 communities across the U.S. get their power from community-owned, not-for-profit public power utilities like EPUD. Together, we safely provide reliable, low-cost electricity to more than 49 million Americans, and proudly give back to the communities we serve.
Simply put, public power is community power. Decisions about how the utility is run are made by people who live and work right here, in the community. EPUD is committed to the communities it serves, and invests revenues directly back into those communities.
Celebrate Public Power with EPUD!
Each October, EPUD joins public power utilities across the nation in celebrating Public Power Week. We celebrate because public power delivers more than electricity; it delivers important benefits to our customers, such as low rates, proven reliability, and local service.
TOP QUALITY SERVICE
When customers need help, public power utilities have local crews that can respond to outages faster. For EPUD, providing the highest quality service to our customer-owners has always been our number one priority.
Headquartered in Eugene, EPUD creates local jobs for customer service representatives, lineworkers, engineers, mechanics, and administrators. Kids growing up in public power communities can find a career right in their hometown.
Public power utilities exist to serve their customer-owners, not remote shareholders. With no profit motive and only the community’s best interests at heart, we keep electricity rates reasonable through a transparent process.
OWNED BY CUSTOMERS
Local control and management gives public power utilities more command over day-to-day operations and increases our level of safety in the field.
