Public Power

Our System

Tarentum Borough is one of thirty-five Pennsylvania Boroughs to own and operate its own electric distribution system. The Borough serves as the Electrical Distributor Service (EDS) for all electricity customers within its municipal boundaries. 

Sometimes referred to as Redcat Power, the department distributes power via numerous West Penn Power primary feeds located at the Borough boundaries. The Borough purchases its current electric supply from PSE&G and contracts electrical system work to Schultheis Electric Co., based out of Latrobe, Pa.
