In 1898, growing increasingly dissatisfied with the oil lamps used to light its street, Westerville City officials turned to a new energy source-electricity. More than 100 years later, the Westerville Electric Division is still the only municipally owned and operated suburban electrical provider in Central Ohio, serving all Westerville's 37,000+ residents and over 2,100 businesses.
Located at 139 E. Broadway Avenue, the Electric Division is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide immediate assistance to customers. This division installs and maintains all electric meters, lines and street lighting. Facilities include six substations, which aid in distributing power to all of Westerville.
The City of Westerville Electric Division is a designated RP3 Public Power Provider, a program that recognizes utilities that demonstrate proficiency in reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. The Division is a PUBLIC POWERutility that strives to deliver low-cost, reliable energy while practicing good environmental stewardship.
The Division is proudly operated by 44 dedicated professionals.
