Cedarburg Light & Water Utility maintains an electric distribution system that services over 6,000 customers in the City of Cedarburg, and a portion of the Town of Cedarburg. The purpose of this distribution system is to "step down" the 138,000 volt power that is delivered to our substations via cross-state transmission lines from our power supplier, providing electricity to your home or business at the appropriate safe voltage.
Our electric utility staff is responsible for maintaining three substations with current capacity of over 100 megawatts and more than 256 miles of overhead and underground conductor. Over 1,100 transformers regulate the voltage measured by 6,300 meters used by our customers.
