The Electric Department provides over 10,800 customers in a 54 square mile service territory with reliable electricity at the lowest price possible. Easton Utilities purchases electricity on an hourly basis, but we also own 18 electric generators and operate them to offset costs during times of high energy prices. These generators, which have total capacity of 69 megawatts, have the ability to cover the load of the service territory should we become disconnected from the grid.
