Here's how Harrisonville gets its electric for you, our customer.

Harrisonville purchases wholesale electric power from the Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission (MJMEUC). MJMEUC is a separate governmental entity for the purpose of pooling the electric utility resources of the pool members and acquiring additional electric services as a separate entity, making possible more beneficial use of generating facilities and assuring better service in emergencies.

The Electric Department oversees the distribution of this power to retail customers within the city limits of Harrisonville. The City of Harrisonville currently serves approximately 4,744 electrical customers.

The division is responsible for constructing and maintaining the electric distribution lines and transmission lines, service lines, substations, transformers, and other related and supportive equipment required for the safe and reliable delivery of electrical service to local customers:
  • Tree trimming and right-of-way management
  • Public relations programs in the community

  • Response to all emergency calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
