Fact Book

The City of Anaheim has been hard at work serving its residents ever since its foundation in 1857. For over a century and a half, the City has cultivated the ability to rise to any challenge with innovative solutions to better the community. In 1879, Anaheim’s leaders took responsibility for operating the water system for their fledgling city. Then, in 1894, they seized the opportunity to build the first municipal electric utility in Southern California, changing the face of the region for years to come.

Such reliable, affordable water and power attracted businesses and families, evolving Anaheim into a leading industrial and manufacturing center. In the 1950s, the City’s many unique qualities attracted the attention of the famous Walt Disney, who was looking for the perfect place to build his dream park. Anaheim boldly embraced the opportunity, and was soon catapulted onto the world stage: first as a dynamic tourist destination, and later as a bustling convention, sports, and entertainment hub.

As a result, the Anaheim of today looks much different from the Anaheim of the past – and its demands for water and electricity are far higher than our ancestors could ever have imagined. But the dedication of the City to serving its community and meeting challenges head-on has remained unchanged. Our residential electric rates are the lowest in Orange County, and we still work hard to deliver quality water at a competitive price. We also offer a value-packed array of Rebates and Incentives - helping our customers make more efficient and economical use of the critical resources we provide. Here are the facts.
