Community Benefits

Kaukauna Utilities invests more than meters, poles and cable in the community. Our civic pride and commitment to excellent customer service extends to making Kaukauna a better place to live and work.

Since 1912, Kaukauna Utilities has seen the community flourish. We’re proud to have supplied the electric power that has helped to make this growth possible. We’re equally proud that the volunteer efforts of our employees and the utility have contributed to the development, growth and well being of our great community.

The cornerstone of a not-for-profit, community owned and operated utility is “local people working together to meet local needs” – that’s just where the benefits to the community start.

Low Rates

Residential electric costs in Kaukauna are lower than those charged by neighboring investor-owned utilities. Because community-owned utilities do not operate to make a profit, you pay only for the cost of service. This allows us to provide highly competitive electric rates.

Being part of the community we serve is a role that Kaukauna Utilities takes seriously. As a utility, we work hard to be an active participant by lending a hand in community service projects.

We have pledged a strong commitment to, not only our customers, but to our community. Through a number of civic-minded activities, Kaukauna Utilities has fostered strong relationships that help further our connection to the community.

We also support a large and varied number of community organizations through contributions that will help meet a need in the community.


Kaukauna Utilities is proud to help in the educational efforts of our community’s youth. Through this scholarship program, we have helped numerous local students with their continuing education. This year, Kaukauna Utilities awarded three continuing education scholarships to local high school seniors.

Energy & Safety Education

At Kaukauna Utilities, we believe that nothing is as important to the future of the community as our young citizens. We pride ourselves on our commitment to energy and safety education in Kaukauna.

Whether it’s through the classroom or the community, we strive to provide a strong network of information to further educate community members about electric and water subjects and how it relates to customers both young and old.

As part of our ongoing educational efforts, Kaukauna Utilities provides educational materials and presentations to schools, service groups and seniors. We also provide teaching units, videos, publications and workshops to interested groups all year long. Be sure to also check out our Energy Tips for Kids!
