Welcome to the homepage of The Town of Granite Falls Electric Department. The first use of electricity in Caldwell County happened in Granite Falls on December 5th, 1888. Dignitaries in Granite Falls threw the switch less than ten years after Thomas Alva Edison invented the first incandescent electric light bulb. Thus, Granite Falls led the way into the future for this area! It would be seventeen years (1906) before another part of the county would have electricity.
Our goal is to provide a reliable power supply to our customers at stable and competitive rates. Our customer service and reliability are second to none with all of the electric department personnel within minutes of our offices. You will not wait hours for an electric employee to respond to the reported emergency.

If you are digging in your yard
Call before you dig: Electric power lines, natural gas pipelines, communications lines, and other utility services could be within a few feet of the surface. For homeowners, excavating in your yard poses some risk. Digging into an underground electric line can cause power outages and personal injury from shock or electrocution.
