Leading the Community Power Movement
Lebanon Community Power expands energy choices for our City's residents and businesses, while lowering costs.
In 2021, the Lebanon City Council adopted the Lebanon Community Power Plan.
We are now putting that plan to action to create short- and long-term benefits for our energy users.
How Community Power Works
Lebanon Community Power combines the buying power of residents and businesses so that together we can achieve competitively priced electricity. Customers are always free to choose to buy power from Liberty Utilities, or from another market option, by submitting notice in advance of their next utility meter read date.
By accessing the power market, we can control price volatility and choose which energy sources to buy or build.
Lebanon Community Power purchases electricity from the sources you choose.
Liberty delivers the electricity using the same power line infrastructure and billing mechanisms.
Lebanon Energy Customers save money and have the power to choose new rates and products, and how much electricity comes from renewable sources.
Electricity markets are changing. Customers are generating their own power and adopting new technologies that add value to our energy portfolio.
Lebanon Community Power will harness that value, and empower customers to create a more innovative and cost-effective energy future.

G1 and G2 Commercial Customers
The table below shows our Lebanon Community Power monthly variable rates for Class G1 and G2 customers enrolled into Granite Basic compared to Liberty Utilities' supply rate in ¢ per kWh:
G1 and G2 customers can opt-up to Granite Plus, Clean 50 or Clean 100 for an additional 0.4¢ / kWh, 1.1¢ / kWh or 3.3¢ / kWh on top of the monthly rate listed above.
Monthly variable rates for both Liberty Utilities and Lebanon Community Power are charged based on how much electricity you use within each calendar month.
For example, a customer whose billing cycle begins on May 15th and ends on June 15th would be charged the "May" rate for electricity used between May 15th and May 31st, and the "June" rate for electricity used between June 1 and June 15th.
