Danville Utilities Electric Service
Our Electric Service is the largest of the 14 municipal electrical systems in the Commonwealth of Virginia and is one of over 2,000 municipal-owned systems in the United States. The electric system was formed in 1886 and is one of the oldest in the country. It was the first system to own generating facilities. During its first year of operation, the system served only 59 street lights. At the present time, Danville serves over 36,700 residential, 4,300 commercial, and 70 industrial customers with 1,800 miles of electric lines in the City and portions of Pittsylvania, Henry and Halifax Counties.
