Riverside Public Utilities


Our Energy

RPU customers get electricity through an interconnected system that generates, transmits, and/or distributes electricity. Substations throughout the City service each neighborhood in Riverside and are key components to providing reliable power to our customers.

Riverside is committed to providing safe, reliable and affordable power that achieves a balance between high quality, low-cost energy and the environmental impacts of providing energy resources.

Energy resources such as sunlight, wind, water, natural gas, coal, oil and nuclear convert energy to generate power. Riverside continues to focus on renewable power and non-greenhouse gas emitting sources.
