Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) provides four utilities to the City of Norwich – natural gas, electricity, water and wastewater collection.
Established in 1904, NPU is municipally-owned and governed by a five member Board of Commissioners and Sewer Authority, who represent the best interest of the citizens they represent.
Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) has earned a Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3)® designation from the American Public Power Association (APPA) for providing reliable and safe electric service.
During its April 2021 meeting, the NPU Board of Commissioners voted to authorize General Manager Chris LaRose to complete an agreement with Atlantic City Linen Services (ACLS) of Norwich to provide rate relief and a payment plan as the company prepares to re-open following its temporary shut-down in the early days of the pandemic in 2020.
The NPU Board of Commissioners approved increasing its annual financial contribution to the Norwich Community Development Corporation (NCDC) by $75,000, bringing its total support for Fiscal Year 2022 to $225,000.
The 2020 Water Quality Report is now available.
On Monday, April 12, 2021, natural gas crews from Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) will begin construction on a one-month project in downtown Norwich to replace several hundred feet of cast iron piping and four service lines.
