Kirkwood Electric: The Power Behind Kirkwood Since 1901
Kirkwood Electric Director Mark Petty meets
with Congressman Russ Carnahan
during the American Public Power Association's
annual legislative meeting in February 2010.
Kirkwood is the only municipality in the Greater St. Louis area that owns and operates its own electric utility. For Kirkwood customers, that means better service, local control, and more accountability. Kirkwood’s City Council is the “agency of jurisdiction,” which means they are self-governing, and you have somebody local who sets the rates and is accountable to you when you vote.
It also means that utility revenues stay in Kirkwood and help fund essential City services for all Kirkwood citizens.
Today, Kirkwood Electric is at work on multiple initiatives to keep your City-owned and -operated utility strong and on the cutting edge of new energy technologies such as biomass fuels and clean-coal technologies.
