The Pennsylvania Municipal Electric Association is the professional association representing the Boroughs in Pennsylvania which own and operate electric distribution systems.

These Boroughs provide reliable, low-cost electric service to all citizens and businesses within their geographic territories, We are a diversified and unique group of small and large municipalities who each buy power at a wholesale rate from an outside generator /distributor and then provide power at a retail rate to the residential, commercial, and industrial customers in our municipalities.

Our mission is to promote cooperation between governments and governmental agencies, cooperative associations, non-profit corporations and public power systems to assist organizations engaged in planning, coordinating or administrating programs related to the development and use of electric power resources. We also seek to promote the mutual improvement and common purposes of the public power sector, and to educate and assist the public power sector in areas such as: management and operation; engineering, design, construction, operation and research; accounting and commercial practice; public policy; personnel training; and such other matters of general interest to public power systems.
