Leading The Way in Public Power

NEPPA is the regional trade association representing the interests of 78 not-for-profit state and local community-owned electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to approximately 2 million New Englanders.

What is public power?

“Public power” means a community owns and operates its own electric utility, distributing energy to its residents. For over 100 years, consumer-owned, not for profit electric utilities have brought low–cost reliable electric service to customers throughout the United States. Nationally, 1 out of 4 customers is served by a public power company that is owned and operated by local or state governments or rural cooperatives.

Our Mission

To develop and unite public utility professionals by advancing their knowledge, capabilities and voice in the public power industry and workplace.

Our Vision

To be the best and most advanced utility resource and training organization in the Northeast.
