Electric Systems

Mission Statement

The mission of the City of Concord's Electric Systems Department is to deliver consistent and reliable electric service in a timely and cost efficient manner.

 

Attention customers - Purchase Power adjustment changes

As a community-owned, not-for-profit public power utility, we take great pride in our ability to consistently deliver exceptional reliability and superior service to our customers for over 100 years.  We work hard to keep electric rates low and monthly utility bills as stable as possible.  Unfortunately, rising natural gas prices have significantly increased the cost of the electricity that we purchase and distribute to our customers.  As a result, beginning in August 2022, customers will see a change in the Purchase Power Adjustment line item on their monthly statement to help recover these costs.

Customers can learn more about the Purchase Power Adjustment (PPA), why it's necessary to adjust the PPA at this time, and what it means for their monthly bill by CLICKING HERE.
 

Below is a sample of how the PPA changes will appear on your monthly bill, beginning with the August 2022 billing statement.

Sample PPA - 8/22
