About Us

Service. Advocacy. Safety.

Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin (MEUW) is the state association representing the interests of Wisconsin’s locally owned, locally controlled municipal electric utilities.

The association has been providing service, advocacy and safety initiatives to municipal electric utilities in Wisconsin since 1928. MEUW's 81 member communities range in size from Manitowoc with a population of 33,750, to Merrillan with a population of 539. Collectively, these public power utilities distribute more than 11 percent of the electricity in Wisconsin and most have roots going back more than a century.

Municipal utilities are operated on a not-for-profit basis, and overseen by a local governing board composed of local citizens and elected officials. They are dedicated to providing low-cost, reliable electricity to their citizens, farms, businesses and industries.

As a part of our mission MEUW strives to unify and serve as a common voice for municipal utilities and to provide them with the support they need to be able to improve service to their customers and community.
