Because of our large investments in hydroelectric power, Hamilton’s electric rates will be stable far into the future. Hydroelectric is an extremely reliable, green energy source that powers approximately 50% of Hamilton’s electricity needs. The image to the left is of the Meldahl Hydroelectric Facility, which Hamilton Utilities owns. It is the largest hydroelectric facility on the Ohio River.

Additionally, Hamilton’s Electric Utility earned the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) Diamond designation from the American Public Power Association in 2017 for providing safe and reliable electric service. RP3 Diamond is the highest honor bestowed by the APPA program and it showcases Hamilton Utilities’ dedication to providing safe, reliable power to our community. The RP3 designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development, and system improvement.
