Our borough is proud to operate our own municipal electric system. As a municipal system, it is owned by our citizens and governed by representatives they elect. If there is an electrical issue, we can reserve the matter locally. We install and maintain the distribution lines, and give back to the community we serve. We are members of American Municipal Power (AMP), a nonprofit wholesale power supplier and services provider for member municipal electric systems in six states. With their assistance, we are able to provide our community with a reliable, economical, diverse mix of electrical energy.
