The electric department evolved from a desire to improve street lighting. It began with the installation of a generator which supplied electricity for the street lights.
The first electric power plant was constructed in 1900 at a cost of $11,500. The demand for power grew rapidly, and the decision was made in 1947 to retain a distribution system. It was at this time that the first agreement was made with PP & L to supply wholesale power to Perkasie Borough. A modern substation was built in 1995 and is being used today to distribute electricity to the Borough.
