The City of Wadsworth has owned and operated its own electric distribution system since 1916. Electricity is purchased from a diverse portfolio of power supply sources and serves over 13,000 customers. Local ownership ensures a greater commitment to service for residential, commercial, and industrial users.
The municipal system is highly reliable due to a high tech automated distribution system that minimizes outages.
Wadsworth Electric is driven by public service, not profit. Our customers are our neighbors, friends and families and that's what makes our utility unique. As a Public Power Community, our loyalty is to our customer-owners-not to making profits for stockholders. We help to make Wadsworth a good place to live and work by providing reliable power at an affordable cost. That's what Wadsworth Public Power is all about.
Established in 1916, the City of Wadsworth Municipal Electric system is a premier power provider to all community residents. Wadsworth electric provides the best possible service at the most reasonable cost. In association with American Public Power Association and American Municipal Power (AMP), the City of Wadsworth stays abreast of industry trends and legislative, regulatory and safety issues.
