About the Service
The city operates its own electric utility to provide electric services to commercial and residential customers within the city limits. Check out the U.S. Department of Energy for efficiency statistics.

Power is purchased on the wholesale power market and delivered by the City of Newark. Several outgoing distribution circuits at 12,470 or 4,160 volts distribute power throughout the city. Approximately 11,000 customers are supplied power from these lines from small on-site transformers which reduce the voltage to an operating level.

Responsibilities
The city must maintain 99 miles of electric lines, substation sites, substation units, circuit breakers, and transformers. In addition to maintenance requirements, new power lines, substations, and underground electric utilities are constructed and installed to expand services to new customers as well.
