Eugene Water & Electric Board

The Eugene Water & Electric Board, founded in 1911, is Oregon’s largest customer-owned utility and provides electricity, water and steam to more than 83,000 homes, business, schools and other customers in Eugene, Oregon.

As a public utility, EWEB does 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. The citizens of Eugene, therefore, are owners of the utility.
