 About Us

     We are New Mexico's only 4-service, not-for-profit, publically-owned utility. We proudly provide our community with electric, natural gas, water and wastewater services as we have done for more than 40 years.  Established under Article 5 of the 1968 Charter for the Incorporated County of Los Alamos, the DPU provides payments to Los Alamos County in lieu of the franchise fees and taxes that would normally be assessed against a privately owned utility. In 2008 the DPU added provision of centralized customer service for the County to its service offerings by merging the DPU customer service function to create a unified 311 Customer Care Center. 
     The DPU is not supported by taxes, but rather by rates which are paid for utility services and by certain auxiliary fees.
Our 6-person Management Team shares more than 100 years of design, engineering, finance and management experience in multi-service utilities, power systems, federal agencies and public works organizations.  Our governing Board of Public Utilities ensures that DPU's objectives and long-term goals align with the expressed will of our owners - the public.  

Please join us for the Board of Public Utilities' meetings, usually the third Wednesday of the month at 5:30pm at 1000 Central Avenue, Council Chambers.  The Board of Public Utilities is our governing body.  Please join us for our public meetings or stop by to speak with us. We welcome your thoughts via email  at or by "Liking" and commenting upon our Facebook page at
