Los Alamos County Department of Public Utilities
The Los Alamos County Department of Public Utilities is a not-for-profit, publically-owned utility that has proudly provided its community with electric, gas, water and wastewater services for more than 50 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. The DPU is supported 100 percent by rates paid for utility services.
