Power & Communications Division
Since the earliest days of electric service in the Estes Valley Light & Power has sought to expand to meet the community's needs. In the early days, this meant expanding capacity and service areas beyond the Estes Valley to communities to the north and south. Today, this need is in the area of communications and internet service. Following a unanimous vote of the Town Board at its March 12, 2019 meeting, the Town will begin to launch a community-owned and operated broadband service to the Light & Power service area. Estes Park’s broadband offering will be its own municipal utility, ensuring the same premier level of service and support community members and businesses have come to trust from Estes Park Light & Power.
Over the coming weeks and months, the Light & Power Division will transition to Power & Communications. Updates on the new Broadband utility can be found on the website.
The Power & Communications Division serves about 11,000 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, north along County Road 43 through Glen Haven and the Retreat to mile marker 11, and east on Highway 34 to mile marker 72, and Highway 36 to mile marker 7. The area is bordered on the west by Rocky Mountain National Park.
The RP3 designation is good for three years, but we’re not resting on our laurels. We continue to look for ways we can improve service to the community. We’re all ears when it comes to suggestions from our customers. Visit the Electric Projects pages to learn more about our ongoing efforts to improve the quality and reliability of our electric service.
