The mission of HPS Energy is to be a positive factor in the economic development of the city by providing safe, reliable electric services at a competitive price.
Homestead Energy Services generates, distributes, and sells energy services. In addition to the operation and maintenance of the power plant, the utility is responsible for constructing new electrical infrastructure as well as maintaining the electrical poles, wires, transformers, and street lights needed to provide a reliable source of energy for the resident and businesses in the service area.
HPS Energy has been a true pioneer in providing energy services to Homestead since 1916; a time when large power companies did not realize the benefit of extending their services to the City. From our humble beginnings as a power plant with one 30-kilowatt generator, to a one-time status as one of the largest municipal diesel-power generating plants in the United States, HPS Energy has proudly served our beautiful city and its residents for over a century!
At HPS Energy, we are very concerned about carbon emissions from fossil fuels,
climate change and other vital issues that impact our environment, community and
residents. That’s why we use natural gas as our primary fuel to operate all ten of our
power-generating units. This underscores our commitment to provide our valued
Homestead customers with the cleanest, most environmentally-friendly power
