Holland Community Energy Plan Holland BPW and the City of Holland share a passion for the Community Energy Plan (CEP).
Where Do We Get Power?
We Are Committed to Diversified Power Generation
Holland Board of Public Works offers a diverse energy portfolio, distributing energy from natural gas, coal, wind, biomass, and landfill gas. In fact, with our Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) over 15% of our power comes from sustainable energy sources. This diversity helps us to keep our rates consistent and competitive, sourcing our power from the most affordable option at any given time.
The services we provide are essential to the foundation of our community and you need to be able to count on them. How do we measure reliability? In the electric utility, we track performance using industry standards, such as SAIFI and SAIDI, which allow us to benchmark ourselves with other electric providers.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a new rule for PFAS National Primary Drinking Water Regulation.
Our Water Reclamation Facility sits on River Ave near the banks of Lake Macatawa. Because of its location, this wastewater treatment plant is limited in physical space for future expansion. To care for the resources we have and extend the life of our current wastewater infrastructure without requiring additional investments, we pay close attention to the capacity of our wastewater facility.
