Redding Electric Utility has been providing safe, reliable energy to the Redding community since 1921. REU is locally-owned by its community and locally-controlled by the Redding City Council. Local control and essential relationships with other electric utility organizations has enabled REU to provide some of the lowest, most competitive rates to residential and business customers within the City of Redding.
REU serves over 44,000 residential and commercial customers within the City of Redding, with 800,000 megawatt hours of electricity provided annually and a peak load of over 250 megawatts. REU continues to create value and deliver exceptional services through the challenges of meeting an uncertain regulatory future.
