About Alameda Municipal Power
In 1887, the City of Alameda paid $20,000 for the installations of 13 streetlights and a 90-kW generating station to power them. And with that, the oldest public electric utility west of the Mississippi was created.
Today, the City of Alameda is still in the power business and still a trendsetter. Now known as Alameda Municipal Power (AMP), we have survived over a century and a quarter of utility mergers that created behemoths in other places.
AMP has provided safe reliable power at lower rates without sacrificing service to power our community. We maintain local control so that we can re-invest in the island and provide value to enrich our lives, businesses, and the community.
We’ve seen a lot of change in 130 years, but through it all there’s been one constant: We’re as committed today to delivering safe and reliable electricity to the residents and businesses of Alameda as we were in 1887. We’ll continue to invest in new and improved ways of doing business to manage costs, improve our service, and improve the environment.
