Sturgeon Bay Utilities maintains an electric distribution system that services over 8,800 customers in the City of Sturgeon Bay and the Townships of Clay Banks, Nasawaupee, Sevastopol, and Sturgeon Bay. The purpose of this distribution system is "step down" the 69,000 volt power that is delivered to our substations via cross-state transmission lines from our power supplier, providing electricity to your home or business at the appropriate safe voltage.
Our electric utility staff is responsible for maintaining four substations with current capacity of over 122 megawatts and more than 292 miles of overhead and underground conductor. Over 3,300 transformers regulate the voltage measured by 8,800 meters used by our customers.
Meter Reading & Billing
Gone are the days when a utility employee would walk to each and every meter to ‘read the meter’. Sturgeon Bay Utilities collects usage data from your electric and water meters with an advanced meter infrastructure (AMI) device. Our data collection devices read your meter from a distance and store that information in a format that is then downloaded into our billing software to help produce your monthly billing statement. You can review your own electric usage (in 15-minute intervals) and water usage (in 60-minute intervals) by simply registering for access through the MyAccount tab on this site!
