Nestled at the base of Utah's Wasatch Mountains just a few miles from Salt Lake City, Murray City Power is a publicly owned, municipal electric utility created in 1913 when the community demanded affordable—and more reliable—electricity, along with local control over a vital service.
Today, Murray City Power employs 47 individuals, performing all aspects of utility work including electrical distribution system design, construction and maintenance; electrical generation and substations; forestry division including utility arborists; and administrative functions.
Murray City Power serves approximately 18,000 customers, of which 82%, are residential and the remaining 18% are commercial and industrial. Customer energy consumption is about 428 million kilowatt-hours per year, with commercial and industrial using 292 million kilowatt-hours (kWh), or 68%. Murray is a summer-peaking utility, with an all-time peak of 107 Megawatts. Murray's residential rates average 9.1 cents/kWh, while combined commercial and industrial average 7.8 cents/kWh.
Murray's resource mix is quite diverse, with 50% energy coming from three different coal generation projects; 25% hydro; 12% renewable landfill gas; 6% natural gas turbines; and the remaining 7% from spot market purchases.
Murray's electric utility is stronger than ever, providing exceptional reliability at competitive prices, while advancing environmentally sensitive resources.
