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:

- 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?
