Electric Utility


What We Do (Click here to watch video)

The Electric Department provides economical, reliable, and safe distribution of electricity to residents and businesses in the City of Banning. The Department's Staff accomplish this through continual attention to our physical plant and to a wide array of legal, financial, and engineering considerations. 


The Electric Department procures the majority of its electricity through contracts with the Southern California Public Power Authority.  These contracts include participation in the San Juan coal plant, the Palo Verde nuclear plant, and the Hoover hydro facility.

The Department has a combined total of 27.4 megawatts of capacity, which covers the bulk of its power requirements.  The existence of the Electric Department reduces the per unit overhead costs of all City operations through the provision of low cost energy and administrative support.
