Electric System Study

The village recently completed a comprehensive review of its electrical system focusing on its assets, conditions, and recommendations for replacements and upgrades to improve reliable electric power to our customers. We are also increasing electric rates for the first time in fourteen years to ensure that we are able to support future system improvements, regular maintenance, and equitably distribute the system cost among customers. Information about the system study, as well as the new rates can be found below.
