The City of Westerville Electric Division: PUBLIC POWER

RP3 LogoIn 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 high proficiency in reliability, safety, work force development and system improvement.  Criteria within each of the four RP3 areas are based upon sound business practices and recognized industry leading practices.

The Division is a PUBLIC POWER utility that strives to deliver low-cost, reliable energy while practicing good environmental stewardship.  Westerville's municipally-owned electric service rates are generally lower than similar services provided by privately-held companies in other Central Ohio communities, allowing Westerville residents to keep more money where it really their pockets.  For more information about the cost of public power click HERE.  


Westerville's Electric Division would be pleased to provide electricity presentations or demonstration to local service clubs and civic organizations to educate the public on alternate energy, energy conservation or any other energy industry issues. Electric Division staff will assist Westerville electric consumers in becoming more informed about renewable energy, its importance in energy supply and its viability.
