The Town of Hardwick Electric Department (HED) is a not for profit municipal utility governed by a five member Board of Commissioners, and serves over 4,300 customers in eleven towns with roughly 350 miles of transmission/distribution facilities.

HED has a very proud history of providing electric services to our customers which began in 1897.  In 1912, HED constructed a hydroelectric generating facility in Wolcott, VT and presently generates 10% of our annual power needs with the same dam.  This is a green source of power and combined with our other green power investments clearly show HED's support of renewable energy efforts throughout Vermont.

As a utility in the State of Vermont, our business is regulated by the Public Service Board.

If you are out of service try the following:

  • Check your service panel ... are any breakers or fuses open?  Turn your main breaker all the way off and then back on.  PLEASE NOTE: your main breaker may be at your meter location.
  • If you cannot remedy the problem you should call HED.
  • Please be prepared to provide your name, account number and physical location.
  • All information that you can provide is helpful and appreciated.   For Example:  Do your neighbors have power?

NOTICE: Please pay all of your bills on time. If you are paying in person at the office please bring your printed bill and the entire amount due.
