We are an association of Pennsylvania boroughs that deliver electric power to our residents. We believe that there are three key elements to being a successful public power system: local control, reliability, and positive community impact. Residents of boroughs served by public power systems are able to exercise far more control over their electric service provider than those served by large utilities, and they know that in the event of outages, the response will be timely since it will be coordinated locally. Most importantly, we believe in being responsible members of the communities we serve. Our employees are part of the communities they serve, and are extraordinarily dedicated to providing the highest levels of service to their neighbors.

Borough of Quakertown - Microgrid Story 

PMEA members are leading the way in providing reliable electric service to their residents and businesses.  We seek out and implement new approaches to enhance our ability to meet the power demands in our communities.

Check out this video on one such approach in Quakertown.  

Did You Know?
Public power customers experience half the average outage time as customers of other utilities. Less than 1.5 hours without major events and about 3 hours with major events.  This is compared to 2.5 hours without major events and more than 7.5 hours with major events for large investor owned utilities.
