Over a Century of Service

Over a Century of Service

In 2019, the Naperville Electric Utility is proudly celebrating 120 years as a public utility, owned by the customers it serves. Each month, the utility brings reliable electricity to more than 59,000 customers. The City of Naperville purchased the Naperville Electric Co. in 1899 for $18,000 when the population was 2,600 residents and there were only 350 customers. In 1920, the first substation was energized at Water and Webster Streets, shown in this photo, which was taken in the 1980s looking south to Water Street and the future home of the Municipal Center.
