As OPPD celebrates its 75th anniversary, we’re taking a look back at some key events that have shaped the company’s history. Since its founding on Dec. 2, 1946, OPPD has powered the communities it serves through wars, storms, floods and pandemics.
OPPD operates in the only state in the nation served solely by publicly owned utilities. Such utilities include electric cooperatives, public power districts and municipal utilities. As a not-for-profit utility, OPPD uses much of its revenue to proactively maintain, upgrade and build the facilities, systems and equipment it uses to generate, transmit and distribute electricity.
As OPPD honors its history, it’s also looking toward its next 75 years. The utility is embracing innovation and continuously exploring new and better ways to continue to deliver affordable, reliable and environmentally sensitive energy to its customers.
