The Borough has owned and operated its own electric system since the early 1890's. We generated our own power until 1969, at which time we started to purchase our power at the wholesale level.

Today the Borough electric system consists of a state-of-the-art substation, where the power is transformed from 69,000 volts to 12,000 volts and a distribution system that has been totally upgraded. 

Attached is a helpful video detailing the electric distribution system.
