About City of Hamilton, Ohio Electric
The City of Hamilton has owned and operated its electric utility system since 1893. As the City’s electric service requirements increased, the utility has grown into an integrated generation, transmission, and distribution system serving approximately 30,000 customers. As a leading clean energy utility, nearly 50% of our energy is produced by renewable energy sources with the remainder emanating from coal, diesel, and natural gas. The result is clean, reliable, affordable energy for our customers.
In 2017, the Electric System earned the Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® Diamond Level designation from the American Public Power Association for providing reliable and safe electric service. Diamond level, the highest level of recognition, is earned by approximately 5% of the nation's 2,000 public power organizations. The RP3 designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development, and system improvement.
