Nephi City Power’s responsibilities also include the installation and maintenance of the street light system, line clearance tree trimming, the electric metering system, substation repair and maintenance, maintaining the two city-owned hydroelectric power plants, blue staking all underground power lines throughout the city’s electrical system, and all other electrical duties within the city’s electrical grid. Also, the maintenance and repair of electrical systems in city-owned buildings and facilities located within the city. We assist other city departments by utilizing our specialized equipment and expertise in helping in the completion of other projects taking place throughout the city.
