ABOUT MUNICIPAL ELECTRIC UTILITIES OF WISCONSIN

Formed in 1928, Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin (MEUW) is the state association providing safety services, leadership and management training, advocacy, and member support to the 81 municipal electric utilities across Wisconsin. Most of the utilities have century-old roots serving their communities. Collectively, these public power utilities distribute more than 11 percent of the state’s electricity, providing service to nearly 300,000 customers in 43 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. Municipal utilities, known for their affordable rates and highly reliable service, operate on a not-for-profit basis overseen by a local governing board composed of local citizens and elected officials.
