About Us

The Hibbing Public Utilities owns and operates a cogenerating power plant which provides both steam and electricity for distribution to our service area.  The Utility also furnishes water and natural gas services to the City of Hibbing proper.  We have served the City of Hibbing from our present location since 1919.  In 1895 the City Water and Light Department was formed, and 1995 was our 100th year.

The Hibbing Public Utilities has grown with the City of Hibbing since we first came into operation in 1895.  Our main concern now, as it was then, is to provide steady, reliable, utility service to the people and businesses of Hibbing. 

Built on 100 years of History. Read more >> 

The purpose of the Public Utilities Commission is to develop policy and over see management of the City of Hibbing Public Utility System. The PUC consists of 5 members chosen by the City Council for three year terms. Board Members must be residents of the City of Hibbing.
