The Cascade Industrial Park is served, in part, by Cascade Municipal Utilities via 12.5 kV, 3-phase, underground distribution system. CMU can provide customers with any standard voltage of their choice. CMU has several unique advantages over other electrical providers. CMU has 5-megawatts of standby generation and can carry its own system load when the electric transmission lines go down. CMU can, in most cases, supply electricity at a lower cost because it has no investors to satisfy with an annual profit or dividend. It is head quartered and staffed in Cascade and response time to outages and problems is a few minutes verse hours.
