Light & Power Division

  
Since 1945, the Town of Estes Park Light & Power Division has provided the area with quality electrical service. Today the utility serves about 12,000 customers covering an area of 350 square miles - south on Highway 7 through Meeker Park, Allenspark, Ferncliff and Pine Valley to mile marker 18.75, County Road 43 through Glen Haven and the Retreat to mile marker 11, east on Highway 34 to mile marker 72, and east on Highway 36 to mile marker 7. The area is bordered on the west by Rocky Mountain National Park.
 
Estes Park is one of four community owners of the Platte River Power Authority, joining the cities of Longmont, Loveland and Fort Collins in this endeavor. Platte River Power Authority, a non-profit entity, purchases or generates all of the energy needed to power these communities. Hydropower (100% renewable energy) comprises approximately 20% of the energy portfolio and is drawn from the Colorado Big Thompson project, installed more than 60 years ago.
