About Canby Utility
Canby Utility is a customer-owned utility that was established in 1970 as an independent subdivision of the City of Canby.
Our mission is to efficiently provide you with hometown electric and water service at reasonable, stable prices with a balanced, flexible approach to environmental and future needs.
We are governed by a five member Board of Directors, appointed by the Mayor of Canby and confirmed by the City Council. The Board holds regular meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. The meeting is open to the public and you are always welcome to attend. Our electric and water rates are set by the Board through a public rate setting process.
As a customer-owned utility, our rates are designed to collect only enough money to effectively manage operations and plan for the future. We are funded solely through rates, fees and charges and not subsidized by property taxes or the City’s general fund. In short, we operate as a fiscally responsibly business.
We pledge to continue to do so, managing the critical electric and water systems for our growing community.
As a customer-owned utility, CUB’s mission is to efficiently provide fair, honest, and responsible hometown service to our customers by furnishing adequate amounts of safe, reliable electricity and pure water at reasonable, stable prices with a balanced, flexible approach to environmental concerns and future needs.
