Founded in 1911, we are Oregon's largest customer-owned utility. We provide water and electricity to the Eugene community, as well as parts of east Springfield and the McKenzie River valley area. See a map of our service area.
As a public utility, we do not operate to earn a profit or to serve the investment needs of stockholders. Instead, EWEB is chartered by the City of Eugene to serve the interests of its citizens. We are owned by the people of Eugene and it's our job to provide reliable, affordable water and electricity for our customers.
Our mission is to enhance our community's vitality by delivering drinking water and electric services consistent with the values of our customer-owners. And our vision is to do so while being a local utility that inspires our customers to invest in and rely on us.
Our core values:
City of Eugene residents elect five commissioners to four-year terms to form the EWEB Board of Commissioners. The elected Board is responsible for overall governance of the utility.
The board holds its regular meetings on the first Tuesday of each month. Commissioners welcome and encourage customers to come to meetings and share feedback.
"Working in a public organization where your intent is to help the community, and in our case for customers who are also the owners, is a tremendous responsibility. "

We support and encourage the routine disclosure of information. If you can't find what you're looking for in routine channels, you may make a public records request.
It's important that you have easy access to our policies, procedures, fees, charges and rates for electricity, water and other services.
