MID Celebrates Public Power - October 2021

MID Celebrates Public Power Week – and 20 years as a public utility

For the entire month of October, MID invites you to visit the lobby of our main office to learn more about the benefits of public power, receive energy-and-money savings tips -- and enter a prize drawing for an energy-efficient holiday basket. We will also have refreshments on hand.

MID is celebrating public power with more than 2,000 other community-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to more than 48 million Americans. 

MID is located at 744 W. 20th St. in Merced. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Since forming its electric utility more than 20 years ago, MID has built a system that serves electricity to nearly 12,000 local residences and businesses.

Public power means that there are no profits – it also means local decision making. Unlike investor-owned utilities, there are no investors, no stock shares and no dividends. Power is provided “at the cost of service” with no-markups. The revenue generated by MID is returned to the benefit of all electric customers through investments in the electric system and providing the lowest possible rates.
