Water and Electric meters are read the 15th of each month. Bills are sent out on the 25th. Payment is due by the 10th of the month. There will be a 10% penalty of all utility charges (excluding sales tax and HSU payback) on all accounts paid after the 10th of the month following billing date.

The city gets its main supply of electricity from the Western Area Power Administration with the remaining peak power being purchased from Heartland Consumers Power District. Groton has two substations, and a new remote read metering system.
