Power and Light

Piedmont Power is one of the oldest continuing businesses in Piedmont.

The Electrical Department delivered the first electrical power available to residents and businesses in Piedmont on November 27, 1890.

It remains one of the most modern power distribution systems in the world today due to the continuing upgrades in technology and dedicated public servants.
