The City of Georgetown Electric Utility Department provides purchased power, distribution, metering, street and security lighting and other services to the citizens and businesses of Georgetown.

System construction, operations and maintenance, electric tree clearance, and meter reading are conducted through the Electric Department's office at 800 Church Street.
