Lodi Utilities maintains an electric distribution system that services over 1,700 customers in the City of Lodi and a small area of the Township of Lodi near the city limits. The purpose of this distribution system is to "step down" the 69,000 volt power that is delivered to our substations via cross-state transmission lines from our power supplier, providing electricity to your home or business at the appropriate safe voltage.
Our electric utility staff is responsible for maintaining two substations with current capacity of over 15 megawatts and more than 44 miles of overhead and underground conductor. Over 550 transformers regulate the voltage measured by 1,788 meters used by our customers.
Meter Reading & Billing
Gone are the days when a utility employee would walk to each and every meter to ‘read the meter’. Lodi Utilities crew members collect usage data from your electric meter with automatic meter infrastructure (AMI). Our data collection devices read your meter from a distance and store that information in a format that is then downloaded into our billing software to help produce your monthly billing statement. We generally read the first or second business day of the month.
