From its modest beginning in 1916, Riviera Utilities has grown immensely. Today, the Riviera Utilities electric department serves Daphne, Spanish Fort, Point Clear, Loxley, Silverhill, Summerdale, Foley, Elberta, Lillian, Bon Secour, Magnolia Springs, and West Perdido Beach with electrical power, accounting for approximately 52,650 customers. The electrical infrastructure includes 100 miles of transmission lines, 826 miles of overhead distribution lines, 486 miles of underground distribution service, and 21 substations.
Riviera Utilities has constructed new substations in Daphne, Fairhope, and Spanish Fort, and completed modifications to substations in other parts of the service territory. As the utility moves forward, better reliability, redundancy, and recoverability of the system will be a key focus. The utility maintains and operates the electrical system from its offices in Foley and Daphne.
