Over a Century of Service

Over a Century of Service

As a public utility owned by the customers it serves, Naperville’s Electric Utility has proudly served the community for more than a century. In 2017, the utility is bringing reliable electricity to more than 59,000 customers each month. The City of Naperville purchased the Naperville Electric Co. in 1899 for $18,000 when the population was 2,600 residents and there were only 350 customers. In 1920, the first substation was energized at Water and Webster Streets, shown in this photo, which was taken in the 1980s looking south to Water Street and the future home of the Municipal Center.
